    I think my last Hops died Cuz It was pissed I didn't make it a proper thread, that or it got rabies from the squirrel bites.

    I didn't think this one would live at all at first.

    Hoping to stay here one more year so I can dig it in June, or I gotta dig it in May.

    The roots on everything in this bed have been great, extending, divided, close, and fine.
    If this one is too....It oughta be good!

    As cool as it is right now...
    Tuck a nice healthy small block in there along with some suspension work and a narrowed rear, then it'll be a SUPER-Bad-Ass-Bonsai-Mobile! :D

    Yeaaaa Buddy! :D

    I really like this species, collected quite a few of them in the last 2 seasons. I've found quite a few more ill get this spring. this one is pretty wonky, I like it. I personally would pot and chop it in the coming spring. curious to see what you do with it. I also highly suggest cutting back the shoots, or at the very least, nipping out the terminal buds, right now if you haven't done it already. maybe get some guy wires going or just regular wire, if your not seeing the chop in seeing.
