  • Position: Full sun.
  • Soil: Well drained, fertile soil.
  • Hardiness: Reasonably hardy but Actinidia pilosula requires shelter from cold winter winds.
  • Flowering Period: June.
  • Rate of Growth: Moderate to vigorous.
  • Habit: Actinidia pilosula grows to be a medium sized climbing plant which requires support as it will not self-cling.

    • Spread: 3 m (10 ft)
  • Notes: As a general rule of thumb the hotter and more sunny the planting position, the better the leaf variegation.
