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.

Order your Cinnamon today.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Cinnamon Tree

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.

Planting & Care

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.

I saw on another site that after three years, you cut the plant off at the ground to harvest the cinnamon. Is this true?
Katie G on Mar 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: yes, this is true. Cut the plant off, low to the ground. Then bury the remaining trunk. It will begin the grow shoots. In other words, it will no longer be a single trunk tree, rather it will become a multi trunk bush.The new shoots are later cut and harvested, and so on, for many years.
how much did you pay for your cinnamon plant?
A shopper on Sep 9, 2014

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.
Can I plant this tree on in door pot?
A shopper on Aug 3, 2014

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.
