Humulus lupulus The pale green flowers from these attractive, agile, fast-growing vines are a key ingredient in beer making. The plants form a dense foliage screen that bursts with blooms in summer. Hop plants are very hardy perennials that require a support structure to climb. Hardy to zone 4.

Initial Instructions
Plant hops in well-drained soil, spacing them 3-5 feet apart. If drainage is a problem, plant on hills several inches higher than the soil level. Provide a support structure for the vines to climb, a trellis, fence, arbor or wall will suffice.

Cultivation
Water regularly during the first growing season, but do not allow the soil to become soggy. Fertilizing is not essential, but if you choose, do so early in the season with a well-balanced fertilizer. Hops reach 20-25 feet tall at maturity, dying back to the ground each winter in most climates.
