This gives me the idea to allow another shoot of my Arguta to grow,  
then graft Kolomikta on it below the canopy of the Arguta.  That way,  
the Arguta provides shade for the Kolomikta.

My Arguta is still filling out the arbor, I suppose the shade might be  
too dense once it is mature.  How much light does Kolomikta need to
