This rare kiwi has luscious foliage that is burgundy when young and later deep green tipped with white. Very useful for brightening part shade areas. In spring the stems are adorned with rose-pink, saucer-shaped flowers. This is a male clone so no fruit is produced. A fast-growing vine, it will reach 10-25 feet in a few years so give it a little space or grow it up a large hedge or into a tree.
