Using flagstone as veneer siding

Still working my stairs, I was thinking of using some flagstone to face the front of the ugly concrete landing, 16" x 50". Is there any special adhesive that should be used or just some wire mesh and mortar. This is in New England so I have to contend with the old freeze thaw cycle.
