The kiwi vine has small white flowers in the spring but that’s not why most people grow it. In light shade, it produces leaves that are a spectacular pink, white and green combination.

It comes in a female and male version (you’ll need both if you actually want to grow fruit). For the best colors, try to get a male plant since it tends to have better variegation on the leaves than the females.
