Humulus lupulus 'Aureus' (Common Hop)

Common Hop, Golden Hop


Cold-hardy and very decorative, award-winning Humulus lupulus 'Aurea' is a strong-growing perennial vine noted for its luminous foliage and interesting fruits. It features long twining stems clad with deeply lobed, serrated leaves, 6 in. long (15 cm), which emerge bright chartreuse in spring and brighten up dull areas in the garden. Clusters of subtle, fragrant greenish yellow flowers add texture in late summer to early fall and mature to attractive drooping, papery fruits resembling pinecones. The blooms exude a pine-like fragrance and are attractive to butterflies. This plant dies back in winter but comes back year after year. A quick and easy way to hide an unforgiving fence or cover a pergola!

  • Winner of the prestigious Award of Garden Merit of the Royal Horticultural Society
  • Fast growing, this perennial vine will twine its pretty limbs up to 15-25 ft. tall (4.5-7.5 m) and 3-6 ft. wide (90-180 cm).
