Size: A very fast-growing, twining, herbaceous perennial vine growing to about 15-20 feet

Location: Prefers full sun to part shade

Flowering: Produces attractive yellow-green cone-shaped flower structures. Hops have a tendency to produce suckers that can get into other areas of the garden.

Maintenance:  This vine will die back to the soil line each year so old growth needs to be pruned away prior to the start of spring growth.

Cultivars: Cultivars to look for are 'Aureus' that has showy yellow foliage and 'Nugget' with very dark green foliage.
