It's been almost a month since I planted my rhizomes. It's been a bit cool here (40-55F) in MN since the 70F weekend that I planted, so I expected a slower growth rate. My issue is that where I planted them, there is also some well established perennial flowers planted by my home's previous owner. The first weeks after planting my hops, I started to "eliminate the competition" by digging up everything that popped up in hopes of making a pure hop garden. The problem now is that I don't know what are the hops, and what are perennial flowers sprouts.

Anyone have a photo of a typical first year sprouting? I don't want to pull anything more until I know whats what.

Heres mine after a few days...i'd say leave things alone until you see some shoots and know for sure what your pulling up.
