Kolomitka Kiwi


Our vines are growing, and loaded up with some lovely little green gems.

The Kolomitka kiwi plant is a very long-lived woody scrambling vine and creeper, which ultimately grows to 8–10 m. Kolomikta is the hardiest species in the genus, at least down to about -40°C in winter, albeit somewhat susceptible to late spring frosts. The plant was collected by Charles Maries in Sapporo, on the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido, in 1878, and sent to his patrons, Veitch Nurseries, who introduced it into Western horticulture.
