These Centennials are the "Field Grade" crowns from Great Lakes Hops.
Purchased them as an 'end of season' offering last Fall. Planted them about two weeks before our first frost.
They were about this same size, didn't grow at all and dropped their leaves promptly after the frost. Followed their instructions, mulched over them before the snow fell and hoped for the best.
They are doing WAY
better than the plants I purchased from the supplier in the 'reefer' state. I purchased a few rhizomes from my LHBS to fill in those spots that never woke up. $4ea . . . . . I couldn't say no!
