Silver Creek Nursery

Arctic Beauty Arctic Kiwi (Male)

Arctic Beauty Arctic Kiwi (Male)

Species: Actinidia kolomikta

History: Arctic kiwis (aka variegated-leaf hardy kiwi) are native to Eastern Asia but the origins of this specific variety are difficult to track down. 

Why We Grow It: Arctic Beauty's main role is to act as a pollinator for female varieties such as September Sun. However, once the plant gets older it also sports ornamental pinkish-white and green variegated leaves that make it an attractive addition to any space.

Shipping vs. Pick Up

CLICK HERE to see how shipping compares to pick up.

Shipping: Every year we ship thousands of trees across Canada (except BC due to CFIA regulations). We carefully bag roots in damp sawdust, then box them and send them out via courrier. CLICK HERE to see our shipping policy.

Pick-up: We also have thousands of trees picked up from our nursery each year. The pick-up options is free, though you must wait until you have been emailed a confirmation that your order is ready to pick up, which will have further information such as hours, locations, etc. We really appreciate if you can make an appointment to pick up, then we can be as organized as possible during our busy season.
