Hi Paula
Wisteria does not do well here. "here" being around Tortosa and the coast.Too dry and too hot. Look in gardens around you to see who else has it. Not many I suspect.
Honeysuckle? There are several so if you want the right one better to use the Latin name -  Lonicera.
L.implexa and L.etrusca are native to Southern Europe.  L.pyrenaica is self explanatory and so won't be too happy here. I have L. Japonica making a hedge in my garden but it wants watering once a month in summer.
Most plants that grow well in GB will not be very happy here. Not worth the bother of bringing and if well established there, not a great chance of them surviving at all.
Happy digging
