One of the most extensively cultivated hop species. It's a perennial and as such it can live many years. The above ground part of the plant dies out every autumn and in spring new shoots emerge from hidden roots. Owing to its vigorous growth and densely twining stems it forms thick clothing of a fence, a tree trunk, an arbour or a low building in just a few weeks. An excellent screening plant. In autumn masses of yellowish-green cones appear and leaves may turn to orange-green. When growing in a sunny and dry situation it's frequently attacked by spiders, whereas in shade is susceptible to downy mildew.
