Hops have light golden-green, cone-shaped flowers used for making beer and give home brews authentic Old World flavor. The greenish yellow flowers even smell like beer. They can scramble along the ground or grow up fences, screens, and trellises. Provide full sun to partial shade and humusy soil. Ornamental Hops have attractive green foliage throughout the season. The fuzzy lobed leaves are ornamentally significant and look pretty against a fence or trellis but do not develop any appreciable fall color. The flowers are not ornamentally significant. Climbing bine grows 20-25 ft. in a season and is winter hardy in much of the North. Special considerations: Water regularly to keep the 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.

General Information +

General Characteristics: Hops is a dense multi-stemmed deciduous vine with a twining and trailing habit of growth. Its relatively coarse texture can be used to stand it apart from other garden plants with finer foliage. This vigorous vine quickly reaches 20 feet tall and thrives on neglect. The greenish yellow, conelike flowers smell like beer. It can scramble along the ground or grow up screens and trellises. Attracts butterflies with fragrant flowers. Used as a ground cover and good on a trellis.

Planting/Care Instructions +

Planting Instructions: May be planted in any well-drained soil. Any average to rich, well-draining 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.
