From southern Russia, this very pretty small shrub grows to only about 3 ft. in height. Sochi Dwarf is covered from summer to fall with abundant, bright orange-red flowers, followed by striking, golf-ball size fruit, which is not edible. Sochi Dwarf makes a nice container plant on the deck or patio and is happy outdoors in a sunny, protected location. In colder climates, grow it in a container and bring it to a protected location in the winter.
