Humulus lupulus


Hardy Perennial

Obviously best known around the world for being the main ingredient of beer and ale-making, hops can also be grown as ornamental decoration in gardens. The bright green leaves densely cover the twining stems as the scramble over walls and fences to provide excellent cover. The large green flowers - hops - form in mid to late summer and will then fade to a straw colour. Humulus lupulus are perennial climbers so can easily be cut back in autumn and will readily re-grow the following spring. The stems can also be cut to add to interestive indoor displays. Height: 6m (20’). Spread: 2m (6.5’)

Grow hops in fertile, moist, well drained soil in sun or semi shade. Prior to planting, incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost to improve moisture retention in summer. Be sure to provide the twining stems with an appropriate support, such as trellis or wires attached to walls, fences and pergolas.
Water Humulus lupulus plants frequently until fully established. In spring, cut the dead stems back to ground level and apply a mulch of well rotted manure or compost around the base of the plant.
