Tri-Color Kiwi - Actinidia kolomikta 'Arctic Beauty'

Zone: 4-8

Size: Interesting variegated form of kiwi growing to a compact size of about 12 feet.

Location: Because of the variegation, the vine is best grown where it receives light shade to protect the variegated leaves from scorching in the hot sun.

Flowering; This twining vine has intriguing white flushed with pink variegations on large, oval leaves. It may take up to 3 years to show variegation. As vines age variegation becomes more prominent. Fragrant white flowers appear in May followed by small, gooseberry-like fruit.

Maintenance: The vine may also be trained vertically as a specimen plant for the garden. The best variegation is achieved when the plants are not overly fertilized.
