I was browsing ebay for some Hops stuff.
One thing that interests me is growing hops...
THere are eBay vendors that sell Humulus lupulus seeds.

What type of hop is this?

Is there any way I can know?

it says it is for beer making...i would assume it is something like cascade.

Humulus Lupulus is just the Latin name for the common hop. It's not a specific variety. It'd be a good question to pose to the eBay seller.

Also, if you're planning on using the hops (not just decorative), keep in mind that only the female plant produces cones.

We (those of us who grow hops at home) buy rhizomes. It's a piece of root guaranteed to be a female plant. They are about $3-$5 each.

I was going to say - throw them onto some unused public land. Then I remembered that Hops are considered an invasive pest plant in many places.
