These vines grow quickly & in August female plants produce fabulous hanging cones that are quite ornamental, dioecious (male & female flowers are produced on separate plants), large (4x6") divided leaves with 3 to 5 lobes, grows from sturdy rhizomes, entire vines (technically 'bines') die back to the ground each fall to regrow in the spring, tolerant of gravelly & poor soil, host for several Butterflies & Moths including the Red Admiral, (Vanessa atalanta) Question Mark, (Polygonia interrogationis), Comma, (Polygonia comma), and the Beautiful Wood Nymph, (Eudryas grata), a very robust vine. Not to be confused with the invasive annual Japanese Hops (Humulus japonicas).
