Bianca Golden Hops is a vigorous, decorative climber with similar foliage to a grape vine. Twinning vines with chartreuse leaves turn a lime green, contrasting the red-brown stems. Chartreuse-cream coloured flowers bloom late summer. Mature height can reach 20 feet. Prefers partial shade. Great for backdrops, fences and arbors.
