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.
|COMMON NAME||CINNAMON BARK|
|BOTANICAL NAME||Canella Winterana|
|HEIGHT||Up to 30 Feet|
|ZONES||10 to 11|

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.
