Maintenance Notes: 

Train the vine up a wire or string.  Adaptable to most well-drained soil.  Cut down in fall after the leaves drop.

It's perfect for your home Biergarten!

Yes, hops are used for brewing beer, but this variety was bred for its ornamental appeal.  The bright golden-yellow foliage of this vine is colorful all season, and Summer Shandy has a refined habit and less aggressive growth than other varieties.  It is well-suited to home gardens.

  • I have grown this vine on a trellis attached to my garden shed for the past three years. Each year it is bigger. Quite shady area but the lime green leaves give color. I am happy with it.

    Above Average Superior performance, among my favorites, would recommend to others.

  • Planted 3 in spring 2015 along an iron fence in full sun to dappled shade. The foliage was uninteresting and very subject to insect damage. The blooms and particularly the fruits were virtually unnoticeable from even short distance. Growth was much slower than anticipated. I have seldom, if ever, been so disappointed. We gave up last autumn.

    Unsatisfied Did not survive, inferior performance or did not bloom well - won't grow again.
