|Does anyone have a comparative schedule of bloom dates for:
1) Actinidia Arguta vs. Flowercloud (A. Arguta x A. Kolomikta)?
2) A. Kolomikta vs. Flowercloud?
3) A. Arguta "Issai" vs. Flowercloud?
Will Flowercloud bloom dates allow it to pollinate A. Kolomikta, A. Arguta, and A. Arguta "Issai"?
I have read that Flowercloud is a good male companion for A. Arguta "Issai". Does that hold true for regular A. Arguta?
I have 11 kiwis on multiple trellises, but am unsure if I chose the proper male pollinator for A. Arguta. All my hardy kiwi plants, save two which are new) have only been in the ground a few years and have had few blooms (they are only about 4-6 feet tall at present) so I can't really compare them yet. The Flowercloud males (A. Arguta x A. Kolomikta) had blooms the second year. I would prefer to not have to relocate the Flowerclouds, but will if they are not good pollinators of A. Arguta.
