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.

  1. Healthy Happy Cinnamon Tree! Review by Rose
    How do you rate this product?

    My cinnamon tree arrived in great shape, well packed, and had all stages of growth on it-- a really healthy established little tree. It was about a foot tall and had 2 long stems coming from a central trunk. After letting it get adjusted, I repotted and it's done beautifully! After only a month and a half, it has gotten about 2" taller and has lots of new growth-- the young leaves are reddish, shiny and gorgeous! (Posted on 8/4/2017)
