This article discusses a specific variety of hops. For general information about selecting, using or propogating hops, see the main hop page

Yakima Cluster was derived from Late Cluster, which in turn was derived from Pacific Coast Cluster. One of several other Cluster hop varieties often sold simply as "Cluster."

"Yakima" is part of the name of this cultivar, and not simply an indication of the growing region.
