Hi, Patricia,
You can, but it will take some work. Since most cultivars are quite vigorous, you would want to select a large container and you would need to prune it regularly. It is usually recommended that containerised wisteria are trained as standards. Also, every 3-4 years, you would want to root prune the plant - lifting and removing 1/3 of the rootball - so it didn't get pot bound. Finally, you would want to make sure it was fed regularly.

Thanks Kathy, that was very helpful. This question was for my son who has been given a Wisteria by his girlfriend and will need to keep it in a pot for a few years until he gets a place with a garden!
