Hops Bine 'Cascade'
Item HP030

Grow Your Own Fresh Hops for Brewing!

Cascade, is popular among craft brewers. This is an aroma-type hop known for its large, elongated flowers. It has high yields & it’s easy to grow. Cascade is an excellent choice for beginners. Low alpha acids with a spicy, citrus-like flavor. These perennial vines are disease-resistant and very productive. Provide strong supports for these large Bines. Named after the Cascade mountain range. Ripens in August. Whether you are looking for an attractive, hardy and easy-to-grow climbing plant to cover a fence or an arbor in your garden, or if you are a home-brewer who wants to craft their beer from your own special home-grown ingredients, the Cascade Hops Plant is a great addition to any garden. Each spring your Cascade Hops Plant will send up strong, attractive leafy shoots and the interesting clusters of hops that look a little like soft, green fir cones develop during the summer months. It has a moderate amount of yellow lupulin. The lupulin develops in tight balls in the cone, which makes it a unique variety. It is good for picking, drying and baling.

Hops have light golden-green, cone-shaped flowers used for making beer. The greenish yellow flowers even smell like beer. It can scramble along the ground or grow up fences, screens and trellises. Provide full sun to partial shade and humusy soil. Quick growth; fragrant flowers. Climbing bine grows 20-25 ft. in a season and is winter hardy in much of the North. Large leaves look pretty against a fence or trellis. Produces pale yellow hops that give home brews authentic Old World flavor. Full sun to partial shade. Special considerations: Water regularly to keep soil moist, not wet. Will not thrive in dry locations. Water deep once a week; more in hot, dry windy conditions. Collect mature cones in the Fall and hang to dry. Cut vines down to the ground in late Fall.

Ornamental Hops have attractive green foliage throughout the season. The fuzzy lobed leaves are ornamentally significant but do not develop any appreciable fall color. The flowers are not ornamentally significant.

Planting instructions: May be planted in any well-drained soil. Dig a hole large enough to encompass the roots without bending or circling. Set the plant in place so the crown (part of the plant where the roots meet the stem) is about 1-2" below the soil surface. Cover with soil to the original soil surface and water thoroughly.
