Actinidia kolomitka 'Arctic Beauty' | Rating: 0 votes | Print / Pdf

Actinidia kolomitka is a climbing plant that will easily twine itself around a trellis or climb up a wall. The leaves are green and oval shaped, tipped with silver then turning pink with age. The flowers are white in colour and cup-shaped. It likes full sun and will benefit from a sheltered position. You'll get the best foliage colour if it gets plenty of sunshine. It's not usually affected by pests or disease and has been given an Award of Garden Merit by the RHS. It's also pretty hardy and will survive a cold winter.
