Cinnamon (Cinnamomum zeylanicum)
Cinnamon zeylanicum, or Ceylon cinnamon, is the true cinnamon of the spice trade. It makes a wonderful container plant since the tree is slow growing. Juvenile leaves have a rich reddish-bronze color and mature leaves have a spicy aroma when rubbed. Spires of white flowers appear in spring and summer followed by small purple fruit. When the plant matures, the outer bark is scraped off and long rolls of the inner bark are cut to form cinnamon sticks. Fragrant and highly aromatic, curled cinnamon bark is used for cooking as well as herbal medicine. Cinnamon is reported to reduce blood sugar and calm nerves. Grow in an acidic potting mix in warm temperatures.
