Dwarf Magnolia Tree

Dwarf Magnolia TreeThe dwarf magnolia (M. pumila), a native of China, grows only 4 or 5 feet high, as a rule, and has white flowers which exhale a perfume like that of a ripe pineapple. This is especially strong at night. The flowers are small-only an inch or two in diameter -but the shrub is widely found in Southern gardens, probably because of its fragrance and the foliage, which is evergreen. Its period of bloom is long, and under glass it becomes everblooming.
