Hops Plant
Q.

growing hops

Zone 5 | jeafrg added on April 20, 2015 | Answered

I am looking for a vine that will provide privacy and this vine was suggested by a friend. I want to know if it's an invasive plant and how is the hop vine propagated? Initially, I was looking at Clematis but have never had too much luck with that plant.

    I have listed a few links for you.
    A personal note on hops. I planted an ornamental variety 'Biancha' two years ago growing it along side of a clematis on a trellis. It has not been invasive and is absolutely beautiful in the garden with a lime leaf color. The hops are a great texture and add visual interest. I'm in Zone 4 and it has wintered over well.
    I think Hops would be a great choice. Good Luck.
