Description: The female selection of our collection from Odaesan, South Korea, of this deciduous, woody twining stemmed climber to 3-4m tall. One of the few temperate zone plants which has naturally pink and white variegated leaves, these occur when the leaves are exposed to direct sunlight for at least part of the day. Female lightly scented white flowers are borne in the leaf axils, followed by top-shaped edible fruit by late August here. Easily grown in good light (will burn in too strong sunlight) in a fertile soil with added humus for a bit of moisture retention. Was introduced to British gardens as a hardy fruiting species (hardy to –40C) in mid 1800. Named for our Japanese friend who trained at Wisley in 1995.
