Humulus lupulus aureus
PROHIBITED TO OR and ID
This gorgeous variety features beautiful yellow foliage and can be grown as a stunning ornamental vine, as well as providing aromatic "flowers" to add to beers and ciders. This rambunctious scrambler will make short work of covering chain link, field fencing, or any other trellis you care to put in its path! The aroma of the dry hop flowers promises fruit and tropical flavors, but the actual presentation in beer tends more toward pine, resin and floral. Certainly a multi-dimensional taste sensation!
It can grow over 20’ in a season, dying back to the ground each year in most climates. Vines can be pruned at any time without damage to the plant. Space at least 8’ apart. They thrive in a rich, well-drained, regularly moist soil and the cones are ready for harvest in the fall. This variety may prefer a little afternoon shade in hot climates to prevent leaf scorch.
