|Blooms||Late Spring to Early Summer|
|Mature Size||Twining stems quickly reach 30 ft. long.|

|Design Ideas||Kiwi vines are ideal candidates for training onto virtually any kind of arbor or trellis. Grow along the top of a fence line for a long run of foliage. Will arch over a covered gateway too.|
|Companion Plants||Rosemary (Rosmarinus); Cranesbill (Geranium); Catmint (Nepeta); Raspberry (Rubus); Grape (Vitis); Pomegranate (Punica)|
|Care||Prefers fertile, loamy, well-drained soils. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to establish extensive root system. Once established, water consistently; avoid soggy or overly dry soils. Fertilize in early spring and again in early summer. Prune back in late winter to control size. Provide trellis or arbor for support.|
|Lore||The genus was named from the Greek for ray, by John Lindley in the early 19th century, referring to the radiating styles of the flower. This is the signature genus of the Actinidiaceae family which includes many types of woody tropical vines.|
