Answer: Although considered less vigorous than the floribunda, this vine is still very big, hitting thirty feet or so. As such it needs a very sturdy support, too.
You certainly could train it as a standard, however planting it in the ground is always preferable to trying to maintain it in a container. If planted in a lawn area and trained to a sturdy post, the plant will be healthier and your job of taking care of it will be much easier -- this is what I would suggest if at all possible.
If grown in a container, you will need to water and feed it faithfully, insulate the roots in the winter, and pot it up into a larger container periodically, then ultimately root-prune and repot periodically as needed to keep it healthy.
Enjoy your wisteria!
