Add a Twist to your Garden with Cinnamon

Bending and twisting toward the sky at heights of up to 60 feet in the wild, Cinnamomum—or as it’s more commonly known, Cinnamon--is a sturdy tree of ancient origins.  Dating back thousands of years to its native land Sri Lanka, few trees in the landscape have the wonderful, eclectic attributes of Cinnamon.  With a distinctive, aged-look, its limbs are few, but substantial and split off from the trunk carrying scores of multi-veined, tear shaped leaves.  

Their green, leathery appearance adds to the visual allure of the tree, especially when they begin to turn purplish with maturity. Complimented by clusters of dark purple berries and delicate yellow flowers, the colors sync together perfectly for a tree that commands attention wherever you choose to plant it.
Cinnamon spice adds everything nice to your garden

The prize that has made Cinnamon a household ingredient the world over is beneath its thick, crusty bark.  It’s there, that the inner bark contains the flavor that is ground into a spice for which the tree gets its respected name.  Extracting one of the most beloved spices right in your own kitchen will enable you to bake pies like you've never tasted.  Create puddings, desserts—even cook up pastas and stews flavored with the incomparable flavor of home grown cinnamon.  

And the best treat of all is in the drinks.  Brew your own Chai tea, sprinkle some Cinnamon in your hot cocoa or even add some to your next glass of wine.  With all the visual and flavorful benefits you get from Cinnamon, it’s time to spice up your garden or landscape with this incredible tree.

This plant is recommended for zones:

Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Cinnamon Tree.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Cinnamon Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Cinnamon Tree again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

Not good for any cold temps.
Trees arrived fine with fast shipping and good packaging but were never suited to survive a Georgia winter.

If you take the inner bark will that kill the tree?

How old and tall are the 3 gallon trees?
Ryan D on Aug 13, 2014
BEST ANSWER: My tree was a very healthy and lush 4-5' tall. I'm not sure how old it is but it is in the ground now and doing quite well. I didn't even have that period of time that some plants have, getting used to being transplanted. It just soars. Every plant and tree that I have received from Fast-Growing have been excellent. I haven't had one problem.
This is a very tall tree with a very small US outdoor range. Can it be grown in a large pot and does it become mature enough in a pot to harvest some cinnamon?
Anna M on Sep 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I can answer part of your question based on my tree. It is in a large pot on the patio in Jacksonville FL and has grown over 6 feet tall. I have not harvested anything yet as I have had it just over a year. It just took off in growth this spring/summer and is doing well. I will have to read more about harvesting before I try. Hope that helps.
does this tree need full sun or shadow area...?
ana M on Oct 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Hi Ana - we live in Florida, on an island, so when we get sun, we get SUN! So, we put it where it will get later afternoon sun - but everything gets tons of light all day long. Ours is doing great. Good luck, I'm sure you'll love yours too! - Kathleen

Will my Trees Look Like the Photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos.

Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Most Fruiting Plants are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
