Wisteria Has Sprouted Long Bean Pods Rather Than Flowers

Anonymous added on August 30, 2011 | Answered

What do I do? Do I wait until fall and give it a really good pruning? I have never seen this before. These bean pods dangle like the flowers ordinarily would. They have been there since the blooms would have been. Any suggestions? The plant is about 5 years old.

The pods are seed pods. Tthey come from the flowers being pollinated. It never hurts to prune a wisteria but the seed pods should not happen next year as there were no blossoms to pollinate this year.
