Wild Cinnamon Bark, Canella winterana

This narrow, low branched tree has beautiful foliage and colorful small flowers and fruit that provide nectar for insects and food and cover for birds. A native of our tropical hardwood hammocks, it is not freeze tolerant. It will grow in full sun, full shade, or part shade, part sun.
