    it is a schefflera,dwarf is an oxymoron, u can plant it outside and it will grow very tall. it is cat friendly but do plant it away from the house as the roots are very invasive and it does get to b 20 or 30 ft tall. It will stay small if u keep it in the same pot .

    You are right and yes you can. Probably from warm weather in spring till fall. So make sure you keep it potted and bring it in in the winter. They will freeze like crazy if you are in a freezing climate.

    In Tampa Florida in 1977 we had a 12 or 15 foot Schefflera outside and we got so cold in January that year that it froze to the ground. Oh yes it actually snowed.
