Description:

A common and showy vine, featuring stunning golden foliage which fades to yellow-green over summer, interesting cone-shaped clusters of yellow fruits which are used in beer making; very tough and adaptable, tends to spread, needs structural support

Ornamental Features

Golden Hops is primarily grown for its highly ornamental fruit. It produces abundant clusters of yellow hop-like fruit from mid summer to mid fall. It has attractive yellow foliage which emerges gold in spring. The fuzzy lobed leaves are highly ornamental but do not develop any appreciable fall color. The flowers are not ornamentally significant.

Landscape Attributes

Golden Hops is a dense multi-stemmed deciduous woody vine with a twining and trailing habit of growth. Its relatively coarse texture can be used to stand it apart from other landscape plants with finer foliage.

This is a high maintenance woody vine that will require regular care and upkeep, and can be pruned at anytime. Gardeners should be aware of the following characteristic(s) that may warrant special consideration;

  • Spreading

Golden Hops is recommended for the following landscape applications;

  • Hedges/Screening

Planting & Growing

Golden Hops will grow to be about 30 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 3 feet. As a climbing vine, it tends to be leggy near the base and should be underplanted with low-growing facer plants. It should be planted near a fence, trellis or other landscape structure where it can be trained to grow upwards on it, or allowed to trail off a retaining wall or slope. It grows at a fast rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 20 years.

This woody vine does best in full sun to partial shade. It prefers to grow in average to moist conditions, and shouldn't be allowed to dry out. It is not particular as to soil type or pH, and is able to handle environmental salt. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments. This is a selected variety of a species not originally from North America.
