For many, the attraction to kiwi vines is their variegated foliage. Leaves in the spring emerge green, picking up splotches of white. To keep things interesting, some leaves develop pink tips followed by small white blooms that appear in the spring. These climbers are of the twinning type and reach long lengths. They’re best grown on a supporting structures like trellises, arbors, or wooden fences. Make sure these structures are sturdy because mature kiwi vines can get heavy! Training them up a supporting structure can function as great privacy screens, while displaying their gorgeous foliage and bright blooms.
