Plant details

Humulus lupulus is a fast-climbing perennial, bearing masses of large, yellow-green leaves from spring to autumn. The flowers borne on females can be used in dried flower displays – if left, they develop into hops.

Humulus lupulus 'Aureus' has brighter leaves with a golden yellow tint. It's ideal for covering an arch or pergola. Its hops can ve used in brewing, dried flower arrangements or used to make 'hop pillows' to aid sleeping. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
