Golden Hop

Golden Hop; Humulus:

 

Good for a small garden…maybe not!

 

This dies down each winter and reemerges, it does have lovely yellow/green foliage but it grows very fast and can quickly look untidy. The leaves are also quite rough and can irritate the skin.

 

We haven’t used Hop in any of our small garden designs – but we do use lots of other plants that are much better (we think).

Why don’t you take a look
