Cinnamon Tree

$49.00 ($27.00-$49.00 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

This bay is the Laurus nobilis.  It loves full sun, even through the heat waves.  It's a great, low maintenance tree, and can be pruned to desired shape.

Works just as well: Myrtlewood leaves. If you don't live in the S. OR coast and N. CA areas, it may be very hard to get. It's EVERYWHERE here, though. Also a good (and safe!) bug repelent for people and pets.

If you want a drought tolerent tree this is it.Ours was to the point of dead looking trunks and leaves and, with the root ball shrunk away from the pot. I nearly threw it in the compost. However, with some water it came back, unbelievable!
