I have owned many and never knew there was a bloom. What a shocker!! The foliage is beautiful of itself.

I too have a China Doll in my back yard. I've had this plant for about 8 years. Not until today did I know that it could produce flowers. I was outside watering all my potted plants and noticed a large white flower that was lying with my petunias. I looked up (the tree is probably 20 feet tall) and noticed a couple more blooms at the top. WOW........I'm so excited.
