Actinidia arguta 'Ananasnaya'

A Russian form developed under Stalin, but virtually unheard of in the UK. This vigorous climber, closely related to Kiwi fruit, bears large crops of fragrant, tangy, pineapple flavoured, grape-like fruit in autumn. With thin smooth skins there is no need to peel them, unlike kiwi fruit. Very hardy and best in a sunny spot in the UK. Needs a mate like 'Issai' for pollination.

Actinidia arguta 'Ken's Red' (new)

Red-skinned and fleshed fruit on this vigorous deciduous climber, closely related to Kiwi fruit, it bears large crops of fragrant, tangy, pineapple flavoured, grape-like fruit in autumn. With thin smooth red skins there is no need to peel them, unlike kiwi fruit. Very hardy and best in a sunny spot in the UK. This is apparently a hybrid though the RHS treat it as A. arguta.

Actinidia sp. from China (new)

An unidentified as yet Edward Needham collection from an unknown locality in China. A vigorous climber with foliage emerging splendidly red-brown tinted, turning to green with red-brown tints and with pale silvery-grey markings. There are many Actinidia species in China and this is one of the finer ones for foliage.

Actinidia tetramera var. maloides (A. pilosula of horticulture)

Actinidia tetramera var. maloides (A. pilosula of horticulture)

A lovely, vigorous climber from China, with narrow, taper pointed leaves tipped with a conspicuous, variably sized pure white blotch, as if dipped in paint. Coral-pink saucer shaped flowers in spring. Climbs by twining stems so needs support. Sun or semi-shade and any reasonable soil. Until now, wrongly known as A. pilosula; a different Chinese species.

Akebia quinata Cream form

Akebia quinata Cream form

A form of this fast growing, semi-evergreen, twining climber with the sweetly-scented flowers cream with a central maroon zone, quite different from the norm and in my opinion more attractive. Handsome foliage with 5 leaflets and, after a good year, big, dark-purple, sausage shaped fruit in autumn. Good for covering fences, arches or small trees.

Asteranthera ovata

Asteranthera ovata

A very lovely gesneriad from the forests of S. Chile where it climbs tree trunks on the edge of forest clearings. In this country it requires humidity and leafy soil to prosper, so is good on a sheltered north wall or tree. Raspberry-red tubular flowers with wide spreading lobes appear from June and through the summer. 3-4m. Not for the very coldest areas.
