that is a very aggressive vine and my neighbor has one and it took down several trellises.  Don't let it get out of control and I hope it is not near your foundation.
True, Wisteria is aggressive but controllable. It's something you want to tinker at throughout the summer to go where you wanted to go at first or it will become distracted. But, the good news is they are easily trained. Mine is on a wooden fence with rails and has never done any damage. But that's because I trained it the first few years. They tend to go off to the left, or off to the right, but usually not both ways evenly. You can trim it to look even but it's something about the species one goes to the left and one goes to the right.
I found the best way to replant wisteria from seed is to put it in a small plastic container with a couple of variation holes on top. Put it in a couple of inches of rich soil, damp, very shallow, quarter inch, with just a sprinkling of soil on top. Put it in the fridge for 4 to 6 weeks to simulate winter. Take it out, leave it in the plastic container and put it in a warm dry (sunny if possible ) place until it sprouts in about four weeks.  Water as necessary. If you still have enough summertime left then you can try for outside planting. If not, take care of it over the winter along with your other indoor plants and transfer it out when spring gets warm.
