Actinidia kolomikta (common name Variegated Kiwi Vine) is recommended for zone 4 to 8. My Aktinidia usually blooms in May but this year due to the cold spring the blooming time changed to July :-).
Kiwi vine can grow in full sun to part shade. In my garden it grows near the cottage wall that protects it from cold North wind.
I love its foliage color that changes to partly white/pink when the abundant slightly fragrant flowers appear on Kiwi vine branches. The flowers are often hidden by the foliage. As this species is dioecious it is said: 'If growing for fruit production, plant one male plant for every three to four females. If growing only for ornamental foliage and flowers, consider planting any plants'.
I'm not sure what kind my Actinidia is, but it's pollinated every May-June and at the end of August I have a good harvest of small Kiwi. The greenish-yellow edible berries are sweet-sour, very soft. Therefore it's better to collect them in mid-mature stage to not to сrumple the juicy berries.
Did you know about this plant before? Perhaps you have Variegated Kiwi vine (Actinidia kolomikta) in your garden, what is your experience in growth and in use?
