I am interested in a dwarf hop for growing in my back yard. Does anyone have a source available in the USA? Do the suppliers in the UK ship overseas?

Summit! I don't have a source, but what a great hop. Some people complain about the onion/garlic thing, but the overwhelming tangerine thing is what I like. A great hop and super-high alpha, so you could simply use it as a bitter for American styles to get more bang for your buck, and save your more "refined" ( ) varieties for flavor/aroma.

I'd love to get a hold of a summit rhizome too but I have yet to find a supplier. It seems it is still a proprietary hop so good luck. If you do find more than one to buy I'd buy them too!!!!

I found a source at Essentially Hops: http://www.essentiallyhops.co.uk/acatalog/index.html

The prices seem pretty steep. Exchange for USD to pounds is approximately $2 USD per 1 pound. This puts the price for a cutting at 27.5 pounds or $55.00!!

I have limited verticle growing space. I wonder if trimming the tops of my standard variety would be detrimental.
