These fast-growing herbaceous vines quickly cover strings, wires or a trellis to make an attractive screen, decorate an arch, or provide shade against a sunny wall. They can grow over 20' in a season, dying back to the ground each year in most climates. The bitter flavor of the highly aromatic, cone-like flowers is used to flavor beers and ciders, and the soporific effects also make them useful in herb sachets that would encourage sleep when placed under a pillow. Young shoots may be used in salads or as an asparagus substitute. Very widely adapted, and hardy in USDA Zones 4-9. Easy to grow - even in pots!
