Sound like seed pods to me.  Wait until they have dried, then you can
pick them off.  I've heard hosta seed is best fresh but you can store it
in the refrigerator, or freezer, a film canister works well for storing.
To plant I just sprinkle them on top of a tray of whatever mix I have
available and seal in a plastic bag.  But I've only done seeds one time, 
I'm sure some of the more experienced will have suggestions for you.
