Maple is a widespread deciduous tree popular in eastern North America.

Many of its features, especially its leaves, are quite variable in form. Among these features it is best known for its brilliant deep scarlet foliage in autumn. Red Maple is adaptable to a very wide range of site conditions. It can be found growing in swamps, on poor dry soils, and most anywhere in between. Elevation is also not a limiting factor in its range. Due to its attractive fall foliage and pleasing form, it is often used as a shade tree for landscapes. It is used commercially on a small scale for maple syrup production as well as for its medium to high quality lumber. It is the State Tree of Rhode Island. It is very cold hardy.

Maple is a very popular plant in Japan and a subject for bonsai. Autumn in Japan is celebrated with colorful autumn leaves known as momijigari. The foliage of trees light up the Japanese landscape. Scarlet Japanese maples flash against emerald conifers, this is the beauty of momijigari as you view the spectacular colors of changing leaves.

The maples have long been known to be closely related to the family Sapindaceae.

The fast-growing, climbing vine is very hardy, and is capable of surviving slow temperature drops to -34 C (-30 F), although young shoots can be vulnerable to frost in the spring. This vine needs a strong (vines are heavy) support structure on which to grow such as a trellis, arbor, patio overhead, fence or wall.

Actinidia arguta - Hardy Kiwi Chang Bai Giant, Low chill

Click to see full-size image

Vigorous twining vine producing an abundance of small, delicious smooth-skinned fruit. Although, this cultivar can produce abundant crops in the absence of a male pollinator, often in the first year after planting, we recommend other varieties as a pollinator in order to yield more and larger fruit:
Hardy Kiwi Kens Red
Hardy Mini Kiwi Prolific
Native to the mountains and hills of southwestern China, hardy in zones 5-7, these plants have been tested in New Hampshire and New York State where they survived 25 degrees F below zero temperatures! Kiwi plants are attractive growers that require a sunny location, preferably with wind protection. They can be grown in different types of soils; however, the soil must be well drained. The vines take very little maintenance-just pruning and support to hold about 100 lbs. of fruit for a mature plant. The fruit is very high in Vitamin C and its use in recipes is endless. The hardy Kiwis ripen in mid to late September.
RECOMMENDED FERTILIZERS:
SUNSHINE C-Cibus - Crop Nutrition Booster
Mango-Food - Smart Release Fruit Tree Booster
SUNSHINE-Honey - sugar booster

Actinidia arguta - Hardy Kiwi Kens Red, Low chill

Click to see full-size image

Vigorous twining vine producing an abundance of small, delicious smooth-skinned fruit. This climber offers glossy foliage and fragrant white blooms, making it a showy landscape specimen. Attractive on arbor or trellis.
The hardy kiwi vine grows smooth-skinned juicy green fruits up to 11.5 inch across. Unlike the larger 'New Zealand' kiwis, which must be peeled before eating-the skin of the hardy kiwi is as tender and edible as a juicy grape, and the fruits picked fresh off the vine are even sweeter than regular kiwis. Chill Hours 300-400

The vines are easy to grow, are not troubled by insect of disease, flowers in spring, followed by clusters of delicious ripe fruit by the end of summer. Deciduous.
We recommend to plant with other varieties as a pollinator in order to yield more and larger fruit:
Hardy Kiwi Chang Bai Giant
Hardy Mini Kiwi Prolific

Actinidia arguta - Hardy Mini Kiwi Prolific

Click to see full-size image

Prolific Hardy Kiwi is valued for its self fertility. Prolific fruit is dark green all the way through. Hardy Kiwi likes half day to full sun and well-drained soil. The plants need a strong trellis and can spread 10-12 ft when mature. Prolific Kiwi, a self-pollinating variety, is early ripening and produces abundant crops of medium to large, sweet and tasty fruit. The cultivar is sometimes used as a pollinator for other female cultivars. Fruits are flavorful with reddish/violet on the skin and flesh when ripe. Minimum chilling requirements 300 hours. These Kiwi have smooth-skinned fruits so there is no need to peel the skin of the fruits unlike the fuzzy fruit species Actinidia deliciosa. Fruits vary in size and are similar to several varieties of grapes. Plant stems and fruit buds are more cold tolerant than the A. deliciosa species and are mainly grown in colder areas where the cold temperatures can range from 10-18F. Fruit flavors are of course different with every cultivar, similar to all fruits.
The Hardy Mini Kiwi Prolific can bear fruit the first year after planting. It produces smooth-skinned fruit the size of large grapes in late summer to early fall, great for fresh eating, salads, dessert or jelly. Kiwi plants are attractive growers that require a sunny location, preferably with wind protection. They can be grown in different types of soils; however, the soil must be well drained. Kiwi plants are very pretty when used to cover a wall or fence or used in landscape design. Less aggressive than other kiwi varieties, Prolific is easily trained and ideal for trellises or fences.

Actinidia deliciosa, Chinese Gooseberry, Kiwi Fruit

Click to see full-size image
Female flower
 Actinidia deliciosa
Family: Actinidiaceae
Chinese Gooseberry, Kiwi Fruit
Origin: China
Vine or creeperFull sunRegular waterWhite/off-white flowersYellow/orange flowersFragrantDeciduousAttracts butterflies, hummingbirdsEdibleSubtropical, cold hardy at least to 30s F for a short time

Kiwifruit is native to southern China, and has been declared the national fruit of that country. Other species of Actinidia are also found in China and range east to Japan and north into southeastern Siberia. The true Chinese gooseberry (A. sinensis) is native to China. Almost all kiwifruit in commerce belong to a few cultivars of Actinidia deliciosa, and those fruit that we find at local markets is grown in New Zealand. This name "kiwifruit" comes from the kiwi a brown flightless bird and New Zealand's national symbol, and also a colloquial name for the New Zealand people.

The oblong fruits are up to 3" long. The russet-brown skin of the fruits is densely covered with short, stiff brown hairs. The flesh is firm until fully ripen; it is glistening, juicy and luscious. The color of the flesh is bright-green, or sometimes yellow, brownish or off-white, except for the white, succulent center from which radiate many fine, pale lines.

This lovely twiner with its fuzzy leaves, is ideal for trellis growing. The plant is a vigorous, woody vine (liana) or climbing shrub. Young leaves are coated with red hairs; mature leaves are dark-green and hairless on the upper surface, downy-white with prominent, light-colored veins beneath. The flowers are fragrant, dioecious or bisexual. Male and female flowers appear on different plants and both sexes have to be planted in close proximity for fruit set. Bees are normally used by commercial orchards, although the more labor intensive hand pollination is sometimes employed. Male flowers are gathered and processed to extract their pollen. This is then sprayed back on to the female flowers.
