Product description

  • Rate of growth: vigorous
  • Flowering period: September

    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.

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