Humulus lupulus ‘Aureus’

1 gal pot


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 and needs structural support


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 attractive leaves emerge gold in spring, turning yellow in color throughout the season. It will grow to be about 20 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 3 feet. As a climbing vine, it should either 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.


As an herbaceous perennial, this plant will usually die back to the crown each winter, and will regrow from the base each spring. Be careful not to disturb the crown in late winter when it may not be readily seen! Gardeners should be aware that there is some upkeep required, such as pruning back each year, and that is can spread as will most hops plants
