Hops (Humulus Lupulus) are hardy, perennials. The plant grows annual vines from a permanent root called a crown. Vines may grow up to 25 feet in a single season and die back to the crown in fall. The crown also produces underground stems called rhizomes which are used for vegetative propagation. Hops are dioecious, meaning there are separate male and female plants. Only the female produces the flowers that are used for brewing or medicinal purposes. You will receive female rhizomes. Hops are native to the temperate zones of the northern hemisphere. They are found wild in western Europe, Asia and North America. Under good conditions, hops are a prolific vine, will produce from 1/2 to 2 pounds of dried flowers per plant.
