Buy Humulus lupulus 'Aureus' golden hop: Stunning, yellow-green leaves and lovely autumn colour

This climber is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained, humus-rich soil
  • Rate of growth: vigorous
  • Flowering period: September
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    A gorgeous climber with large, deep-lobed, yellow-green leaves that turn bright golden yellow in autumn, when it is festooned with greenish-yellow, cone-like flowers that hang like grapes. Given space to express itself, this vigorous golden hop will romp along a strong rose arch or arbour.

  • Garden care: Plant in fertile, well-drained soil in full sun, and tie in the twining shoots around the base of the support. Cut back to ground level in the spring and mulch with well-rotted manure or garden compost.

Notes on Humulus lupulus 'Aureus'

"This climber grows fairly rapidly in a year, so make sure you give it plenty of space"

Good quality plant

5

Grown against a wall on wires makes an attractive background plant. Easy to train. Needs plenty of space but could be cut back if space restricted Hops are contrast in form/colour to the leaves & can be dried for indoor decoration. Cut down in Autumn. Pretty well 'bomb proof ' Lasts for years Only replaced previous plant due to alteration with wall/fence.

Thrilled with this hop

I have grown it up a telephone pole which had to be sited in front of our house - it is a wonderful adornment.

Brilliant plants!

I ordered these plants on a Monday afternoon and they arrived at 11am on Thursday! I thought the plants were somewhat pricey but couldn't find them anywhere else so bought 2 in one and a half litre pots. I had no idea how large they would be, the are a great size and very healthy looking, can't wait to put them in tomorrow. I already have this plant but need these to cover a new fence. Very impressed with the quick delivery and amazing plants!

Please can you tell me whether this plant produces actual hops please?

garden bunny

Hello, these do produce female flowers (hops), but I am not sure how successful they are in brewing as they tend to be grown more for ornamental use.

Helen

I am thinking of the dwarf version - do the roots need to be contained in the ground?

ssiii

Hello, I am not sure which cultivar you are referring too, but this is a pretty big plant when it gets going, so is going to be much happier planted in the ground rather than potted up.

Helen

Can you plant them in large pots

Isabelle

Hello there This climber would be happier eventually in the ground as it is a vigorous grower. It will probably ok in a container for a couple of years as long as it is watered and fed, but long term I would plant it into the garden. Hope this helps.

Can Humulus be grown in a pot or container?

Juniper berry

Hello, It will be OK in a large pot for a year or two, provided it is kept well fed and watered. Ultimately though, it will be happiest in the ground as it is a large plant.

Helen

Is this the right type of hop for brewing beer?

Den

Hello, Traditionally it is the species, Humulus lupulus, which is used for brewing beer. I have heard however that this golden-leaved cultivar can also be used, but (never having tried it) I am not sure if it is as successful.
