Humulus lupulus ’Aureus’ is one of my favourite climbers because of its color.
And it is so easy to add from roots! I have bought only one plant but added
it from tiny pieces of roots to many places and also donated them to friends.
I have it growing on a pergola and on an iron mesh fence
next to the neighbour with Parthenocissus.
Now it has builded these pretty cones or whatever they are.
The chemical compounds found in Humulus lupulus are main components
in flavoring and bittering beer. Some other compounds help with creating foam in beer.
Until the middle ages, Myrica gale was the most common plant used for brewing beer.
Humulus lupulus took off as a flavoring agent for beer because it contains preserving agents,
making the beer viable for longer.
Last night was the first frost night, the temperature went below zero.
When the sun came out the day is bright and beautiful.
