I went ahead and started a new thread as I could have posted this in several of the active threads. I bought my rhizomes from keystonehomebrew and they have a nice link to a pdf file from their supplier. It gives a very nice how to get started, a few basics and then some cultural characteritics of the various varieties, which I've pasted below. Here's the link to the whole pdf.

Growing your own hops

Cascade (4.5 - 7% AA) Grows well in all climates. Susceptible to aphids.
Centennial (9.5 - 11.5% AA) Grows well in all climates. Susceptible to downy mildew.
Chinook (11 - 13% AA) Grows well in dry, hop climates. Great ornamental hop. Does not grow well in moist climates. Susceptible to spider mites.
Fuggle (4 - 5.5% AA) Grows well in damp climates, suffers a little in hot climates.
Glacier (5 - 6% AA) Grows well in all climates.
Golding (4 - 5% AA) Grows well in mild, moist climates. Does OK in hot climates.

Mt. Hood (5 - 8% AA) Grows well in all climates.

Nugget (12 - 14% AA) Grows well in all climates.
Saaz (3.5 - 4.5% AA) Grows well in cooler, moist climates.
Santiam (6 - 7% AA) Grows well in moderate climate. Does OK in hot climates.

Hop facts:

Hops like full sun and to be well watered
