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.

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

Customer Comment:

“My plants arrived from Digging Dog yesterday: healthy, large, beautifully packed, and on time. From the website to the customer service to the arrival of these lovely grasses, this has been a very satisfying experience. Although website ordering is easy, I encourage you to call your order in to benefit from the friendly and knowledgeable staff.”
