Golden Hops Vine

Humulus lupulus ‘Aureus’

Hops

<i>Humulus lupulus</i> ‘Aureus’

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 x 0" & spreading wide.

Hardy to zone 5.
