Paint effects

Kolomikta vine (laikkuköynnös in Finnish) is a fun vine for the garden. The leaves get pink/white "paint" effects after the vine has rooted. The kolomikta vine is related to kiwifruits and if you are lucky you'll get fruits of the size of a gooseberry. Well, luck is not quite a right word - you´ll need two plants of different genders or a monoecious (yksikotainen in Finnish) plant. In addition to this you'll need a very warm and sheltered spot to plant in. I have gotten no fruits but am happy enough with the fun leaves.
