The Q&A Archives: Color On Actinidia

Question: My three year old actinidia vine is leafing profusely, and have magnificent white coloring on the leaves, but so far, I see no pink coloring whatsoever. Can I do anything to encourage the pink shades?

I live in Zone 5b.

Answer: The pink edging seems to appear best on mature male plants growing in full sun, so it may still just be too early to see it. About all you can do is make sure the vine is growing well and in full sun.
