It’s not just for beer anymore.
The most common use for Hops may be as an ingredient in beer, but don’t discount the potential that lies in this gorgeous garden plant. Summer Shandy Hops is an ornamental hops variety that has been specifically bred for its beautiful yellow green leaves. This climber will be a great addition to your trellis or climbing wall.
From sun to partial shade, have no fear when it comes to Hops, as it will thrive in most conditions in zones 5 – 8. Hops isn’t particularly needy when it comes to watering either. Commonly grown between 5 and 10 feet high, you should cut your Hops plant back in the fall when the leaves have all fallen.
