A climbing perennial growing up to 6 m tall with soft yellow leaves throughout the summer. A female form, the most attractive of all hop varieties. Best grown in full sun, not drought tolerant. Very effective in autumn (IX-X) with drooping yellow cones scattered around the plant. 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.
