The foundation of clever garden design is in finding new and exciting ways to use existing plants or structures. Issai Hardy Kiwi fits that bill perfectly. Not only does it produce sweet, juicy fruit (without the annoying fuzzy skin of traditional kiwi fruits), it also creates a beautifully fragrant privacy screen. Thanks to a stately 20-30' height and 8-10' spread, it effectively defines specific areas of the landscape, hides those less-than-appealing structures and provides vertical interest, too. Can easily be trained to an arbor or pergola as well. In early summer, fragrant white flowers cover the glossy green foliage for an even more beautiful look. Beneficial pollinators, such as butterflies, love Issai Hardy Kiwi… and so will you. Actinidia arguta 'Issai'

Unique CharactersticsMonrovia: Vigorous twining vine needs no pollenizer plant to produce an abundance of small, delicious smooth-skinned fruit. This climber offers glossy foliage and fragrant white blooms in early summer, making it a showy landscape specimen. Attractive on arbor or trellis. Deciduous. 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.
