Actinidia Kolomikta Vine is a deciduous climber known mainly for its striking variegated foliage colours. It flourishes heart-spade deeply veined leaves that display pink and white coloured spots on the tips as if they’re painted artificially. This exactly is what we call nature’s magic and it’s quite well seen in this Arctic Kiwi vine.
This unusual variegation of foliage appears on upper-most sections of the vine and is not often seen in younger plants. These are large vigorous deciduous climbers with twining stems that can easily climb trellises or fences.
Kolomikta vine’s foliage looks splendid on a bright sunny protected wall. Full sun will encourage the best foliage colours. Leaves are oval tipped with bronze-white that turn pink later in autumn. A fertile and properly drained soil will make sure the foliage is healthy.
It is not very hardy, thus best grown in sheltered location away from winds. You will need both a male and female plant to get sweet fruits (large grape-sized) that are surplus in vitamins. Unlike other Kiwi fruits, these fruits grow without hair but smaller when compared to their relatives.
Pruning is required in early spring to remove any diseased, damaged and tangling stems. The white flowers carry sweet lemon fragrance that will attract butterflies and birds.
