Since wisteria is a legume, after they bloom, they produce seed pods. Typically, around late summer or early fall. Remove them using a pair of secateurs but be aware that there may now be 2022 flower buds near the ends of the stems so do not cut the stems back too far. Alternatively,
try your hand at growing your own wisterias from seed: collect the pods and let them dry. The seeds normally explode from the pods so collect the pods (after the leaves fall in autumn) and place them onto a tray to dry. Twist the pods open and plant the seeds nearly 1″ deep in freely draining mix. But note that wisterias grown from seed may not be identical to the parent.
