My plants are going crazy, but a couple of questions

Cascades are coning like mad.. no worries there..

Centennial are growing, tiny buds...

Chinook are 100000 feet tal it seems like... bunched at the top... cones forming, but not like cascades

Hallertau are about 8 feet tall
Columbus about 6 feet tall

Newport, Warrior and Santium still bushy...

are some of these guys late bloomers because of the species?

How old are the plants? Some seem to establish quicker than others, even within the same variety. Also, the growth habit, physical characteristics, maturity timeframe, yield etc. are all pretty much unique to each variety. Do you have well drained soils? Looks like they like your environment! Pick, Pick, Pick!!

Yeah, some grow better than others. Cascade has always been the strongest hop in my garden, followed by Fuggles. Nobel hops, like Hallertau, tend to be slower.
