Hop tree Overview
A small genus of large deciduous flowering shrubs in the citrus family native to North America with somewhat unpleasantly scented trifoliate leaves and green-yellow flowers followed by flat, disc-shaped winged fruits that resemble those of the Elm tree. Members of the genus are known by the common name hoptree as they were used to brew beer by early settlers in the New World. In cultivation they require a well-drained soil in full sun or dappled shade.
