Cinnamomum japonicum

30th January 2011

Cinnamomum is a genus of tropical evergreen trees but this one comes from Japan, China and Taiwan and is more cold tolerant than most. I have had it in the greenhouse for a couple of years and was hoping that it would grow outside. In most years it starts into early growth and is then frosted. If I get to it, I will root some cuttings before I try it outside. Alternatively I will plant it in the Hedychium House and worry about what to do when it reaches the roof.
