Very popular in Eastern Europe, Russia and China, Sea Berry is not well known to gardeners in North America. A fine ornamental shrub with graceful, grayish-green foliage, it is particularly striking in late summer when it is covered by abundant, bright orange berries. Tart and flavorful, these nutritious berries are an excellent source of vitamins A, C, and E. They make delicious juice and contain medicinally valuable oil. Sea Berry is happy in most soils, is hardy to 40° F and is not bothered by pests or diseases. It is wind pollinated and a male and female plant are required for fruit production.
