Hops will easily grow over 20 feet in one season. Many garden visitors have inquired where I bought such a tall trellis for my hops vine. (It's actually two trellises secured together)
One of the issues for this vertical display was to find a trellis that was at least 10 feet tall. Once it grows beyond the height of the trellis, the vine tends to hang down and re-attach to the trellis and grow up again. This gives a very full display.
I secured two six foot trellises together and "zip-tied" them. There is about a 2 foot over-lap between the two trellises. Securing the two together added 4-5 feet. I also secured the trellises to the house using zip-ties and screws into wood under the overhang of the house. This has been in place year-round for the last 6 years.
The height of the two joined trellises is 10.5 feet.
