Red Beauty Hardy Kiwi is a vining stunner with some seriously good looks that can also produce tasty kiwi fruit. Broad green textured heart-shaped foliage will turn a bronzy red during the fall. This is a twining vine that will naturally wrap itself around a trellis or support to hold on. It has green colored blooms that appear before the fruit is produced. 

This fast-growing shrub blooms in March, with fruit ripening in August. Actinidia kolomikta is a female variety that will need to be planted near a male selection ('Arctic Beauty’) to produce a small, thin-skinned sweet fruit crop. One male shrub can pollinate up to 8 female plants, with each female plant producing 10 to 15 pounds of fruit.

Red Beauty Hardy Kiwi Care

Plant Red Beauty Hardy Kiwi in the spring after there is no longer a chance of frost. Place in full sun to partial shade and use well-drained soil that is acidic to neutral. Trim the plant during the winter, although excessively long shoots can be cut back during the summer.  

Growing Red Beauty Hardy Kiwi

This vining shrub is primarily grown for its showy foliage but will produce fruit after 2 to 3 years when grown near a male plant. The vine will reach 12 to 15 feet tall and spread out equally wide. Red Beauty Hardy Kiwi can be grown in a container. This perennial is hardy in zones 3 through 8, so it can handle winter conditions.

Growing Red Beauty Hardy Kiwi in Containers

Plant this beauty in beds or borders near a trellis or support. The showy foliage makes this a wonderful specimen plant. A 10- to 12-inch pot is large enough for one plant.

Watering Red Beauty Hardy Kiwi

New plants will require weekly watering, but established plants can depend on rainfall to stay hydrated. Water during a dry spell to keep the plant lush and healthy. 

Feeding Red Beauty Hardy Kiwi

This vigorous grower does not require fertilization. A layer of organic compost or a slow-release fertilizer applied during the spring can support new growth.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
