Default looking for cascade hop rhizomes

I know it's late but i want some Cascade Rhizomes for my garden. I planted 3 in mounds early spring. They started well but i think all the rain we got water logged the little guys - i've got nothing going now. and the rhizomes look ugly. If anyone knows where I can get some rhizomes at still this late?

Thanks.

Centennials may be as close as you can get at this point in the year. Similar flavor profile, higher alpha, should work reasonably as a substitute.

You might want to put off this idea until next spring. Its pretty late in the growing season. My Cascades are already producing cones!

i lost my cascade and centennial rhizomes 2-3 wks ago.

cascades are impossible to find. so i got another centennial and zeus.

What do you have to lose by putting them in the ground now? The rhizomes are about four bucks each. That's half a six pack of decent beer. Shipping isn't that much. Planting them now gives you much better odds for some yield next year. It gets you that much closer to good a good root system for that magic third year, when you can expect a significant yield. I just planted four more yesterday.

I think if you have the sense to not fool yourself, planting them this late is fine. You'll get a stronger plant next year and if your patient, that's a great thing. No leads though, sorry.

I was curious about your replacement hops.
