Actinidia kolomikta has become a very popular vine, primarily grown for the kiwi fruits, but has attractive foliage. 'Arctic Beauty' has leaves 4 inches long, born in purple, maturing to purple, pink and green variegation. Clusters of fragrant creamy white 1 1/2-inch flowers bloom in summer. Female plants produce oblong, yellowish green fruit, which can reach 2 inches across.

Fruits are a better source of vitamin C than oranges and have a pleasant, tart, almost strawberry-like flavor.

Growing & Maintenance Tips:

Requires moist, well drained soil, and partial shade to full sun. It is fast growing and makes a good cover on a fence, trellis or arbor, reaching up to 15 feet. Several cultivars are available and it is becoming increasingly popular as an edible, deciduous landscape feature as well as a fruit crop.
