Humulus lupulus 'Aureus'
Zoom In Photo:

This is a choice herbaceous twining vine with large tri-lobed leaves that grows back each spring from the ground to heights of as much as 25 feet in a season. Easily cut back and can be sharply disciplined providing a wonderful golden backdrop to many climbing friends. In happy locations golden hops can spread by suckers so keep an eye out for these. They are relatively easy to pull out and control.
