Hops are a fast growing vine that quickly covers 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 beer. Young shoots may be used in salads or as an asparagus substitute. Cannot be shipped to Oregon, or Idaho. USDA Zones 3-9.
