I was just curious about this. Has anyone done it with the ground shoots? There will be a to as usual, and now that I have the knowledge of pruning it to flower, I wanna see what else I can get out of it if possible. Has only bloomed once in its 24 years ish life span

That's the easiest way to propagate wisteria. Early this summer (or late spring), find a side shoot that is coming off the base of the wisteria. Pull all the leaves off and scratch the stem on the bottom of the shoot just before each node. Apply rooting hormone to the scratch and use some metal staples to hold each node against the soil. Little plantlets will grow at each node. The parent plant will feed the new plants until they are rooted. Don't cut them apart until the plantlets have grown roots. It will take a couple months at least.

Ok, because I hate to waste anything, the ground will be covered in shoots, is there anyway I can almost suspend the shoots and get a head start on making a tree?

I mean the really flexible shoots on the ground, the ones not necessarily stiff. Can I prop them up vertically and make them grow as a tree?

Hmmmm.... it will be a branch lying across the ground that has been trained up at some point. I guess you could try getting it to root.
