Dave says those are 15 year old crowns, so drop it in a hole and jump back.

Is there any Cascade available. I planted two rhizomes of Cascade and have no sprouts. I think they are dead. I would like to re-plant, but are having problems finding Cascade rhizomes this late in the season.
Any help would be highly appreciated.
Dave:-)

Cool!

I planted it today. My plan is to cover a pergola.

I planted a Cascade Crown and and two rhizomes (Goldings and Magnum) three summers ago. The Cascade sprouted quickly and produced cones the first year but only about a half pound. No cones the second year from the Cascade. One of my two plants from rhizomes produced about a half pound of cones last year. So far this year all three plants seem to be at the same stage of development. I'm not sure crowns provide that much benefit.

I guess I gotta a "Crown" by digging into a buddies 10 year patch and taking up like 20 rhizomes and a clump of dirt. Some of them were in the 2' diameter range and that was 5 weeks ago. Now I got 12' bines and hops popping up all over it.
