Cinnamon Bark

Soon after I relocated to the Florida Keys I went grocery shopping at Winn Dixie in North Key Largo and happened to run in to a mature specimen of this magnificent tree in bloom.  I fell in love with it there and then and to this day it is one of the "Top 10" as far as I am concerned.

 Villa Maria has many Cinnamon Bark trees on the property and each year I look forward to the arrival of those beautiful clusters of flowers.

Closest tree to the Bay is about 50 feet.

I can't say enough about this lovely tree.  The leaves are a beautiful deep green color and the plant itself is always neat and tidy.

Cinnamon Bark is not so common but I am seeing it more and more now in the plant nurseries.
