The hops plant which is really a vine is actually quite easy to grow in North American gardens and quite hardy and fast growing. Hops plants are a deciduous vine which return to enchant you year after year. The flowers are white and the hops vine is a great addtion to any tea garden.

The flowers have a sweet citrus flavor and are rich with antibiotic properties. Hops has traditionally been used to relieve tension, stress, anxiety and help get a good nights sleep. It is also used to increase breast milk production in nursing mothers.
