Golden Hops Vine

Humulus lupulus Aureus

Humulus

Humulus lupulus ‘Aureus’ partial shade

We don’t know how suitable the hops are for brewing, but this vigorous, herbaceous perennial vine lends a graceful, twining elegance to any tree stump, column, wall or fence. Opposite and textured, the widely spaced, Maple-like leaves open a striking, almost translucent chartreuse, which changes through the season to a lime-green.

Numerous tiny white flowers are followed by fanciful light green hops in autumn. The stems die down to the ground come winter, but greet each spring with an increasing abundance of new shoots that can grow up to 20’ in a season. Medium Band.

Blooms September.

Size: 20' 0"–30' 0" high & spreading; hardy to zone 5.

Our featured plant: Hydrangea quercifolia 'Sikes Dwarf'

Perennials that cool down a hot summer day, refreshing foliage, soothing blooms, last chance to take advantage of our summer sale!

Bring sparkling beauty to your August plantings

Perhaps you’re looking for some soothing floral or foliar accents on a hot summer day! We’ve found that snowy white, clear pink, pale yellow and deep blue blooms coupled with silver, bluish green or emerald-toned leaves become refreshing counterpoints to warmer-hued flowers. They offer a place where your eye can rest, much like cleansing your palette when tasting wine. These shades meld the spicy-colored flowers of many Achillea, Crocosmia, Dahlia, Geum, Helenium, Kniphofia, Rudbeckia and Salvia.

Our next guided Saturday Strolls is August 19th., followed by September 16th & October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.
