A plant that has caught visitor's attention over the last few days can be found on the sheltered, south facing wall at the far end of the herbaceous border. This striking foliage plant is Actinidia kolomikta. A vigorous climber, its twining stems are covered with heart shaped, deeply veined leaves turning white and pink, a stunning backdrop to the pink tulips flowering in front of it.
