Liquidambar

$40.95 ($19.75-$49.00 choose a size)

A giant shade tree with magnificent maple-like leaves that turn brilliant shades of red, yellow and gold during autumn. Plant at least 10- 20 metres from buildings and powerlines. Reaches 15 -20 metres on maturity. Deciduous.

Cinnamon Tree

$27.00 ($27.00-$59.00 choose a size)

Highly ornamental tree and the source of cinnamon spice. The beautiful red new growth is highly distinctive. The spice itself is the inner bark that is peeled from the branches after 2 years. Scrape the outer bark, then peel the inner bark, leave for a day so that the inner bark curls into cinnamon sticks as it dries. They are distinctive in the many layered quill they produce that, when crushed, will shard rather than snap. Cinnamon is a very elegant and useful aromatic, much kinder to the palate than other spices. It imparts a distinctively sweet flavour when used. The leaves themselves are higher in clove oil than cinnamaldehyde, the active component of the sweet aromatic scent of cinnamon. Weed Warning: Can be invasive in tropical areas

Argyrodendron actinophyllum - Black Booyong

Very exited that my Black Booyong plants have survived their first 12 months of harsh frost and 40 degree temperatures in Victoria. My White Beech and Ficus Obliqua have also survivied. Unfortunately my Tamarinds didnt but will give them another go.
