Smaller than others of its kind; diminutive.
By James Champlin Fernald
A general name for an animal or plant which is much below the ordinary size of the species or kind. When used alone it usually refers to the human species, but sometimes to other animals. When it is applied to plants, it is more generally used in composition; as, a dwarf tree; dwarf-elder, dwarf-palm. Among gardeners, dwarf is a term employed to distinguish fruit-trees whose branches proceed from close to the ground, from riders, or standards, whose original stocks are several feet in height.
