A: Those long, velvety seeds pods are Mother Nature's way of propagating your wisteria, although propagation from stem cuttings is likely to be a more reliable way to successfully start a new plant. Unless you're a giraffe or a monkey, the seeds are poisonous and should be kept away from children and pets. There really isn't any good reason to not lighten the pod load on your trellis. In fact, removing overblown seedpods and spent flowers will encourage more blooms for next season. The pods can also be used for crafts, to add interest to season ornaments or garlands.
