Actinidia kolomikta - related to the Kiwi and in the same Genus. It’s a climbing plant grown mostly for it’s unusual foliage which is often tipped pink/white. Unfortunately none of my hardwood cuttings of 2018 took but fortunately I spotted they had died last spring as they didn’t grow so I took semi-ripe cuttings in the early summer 2019 as replacements and they rooted. The buds have been dormant over winter but now swelling nicely #actinidia #actinidia-kolomikta #actinidiakolomikta #kolomikta

Wow well done you. That’s one of my favourite climbers, and one I of course don’t have! Xxx
