Cinnamon Bush

gardengal2(z5/OH)April 18, 2006

A friend of mine has a bush she calls a Cinnamon Bush. She moved it from her Grandmother's farm. It has tiny yellow daisy like flowers. She is not certain of the name, but that is what they always called it. Anyone have any idea the true name and where I could buy one?

Did you Google "cinnamon bush"? I just did and found a number of possibilities. I'm not sure which one is yours so I hope you'll check and let us know. Good luck!

I have a bush like the one you describe. It's in full bloom right now, and the small, yellow blossoms smell like cinnamon. I started the bush from a friends bush...She called her bush a "Cinnamon Bush", too, and I have no idea what the scientific name is. I tried to find one, but no one seemed to know what I was talking about. Then I discovered that I could start a bush from hers! The bush sends up shoots, or "babies" next to the mother bush...similar to the way a lilac bush does. You can dig those up and plant them, and you'll soon have your own bush. My sister planted 3 "babies" from mine last year, and hers are up and blooming this year. They'll take a few years to get big, but mine filled out and got to be about 5-6 feet tall and wide in 4 growing seasons.

Thank you very much for the info. I will ask the lady who has a bush for a start. I tried to google for a source, but to no avail. But if I can get a free start that will be even better.

I am wondering if what you have is a Clove Currant.

My friend who gave me two "sticks" to plant told me they were cinnamon bushes and the real name of them was Wisconsin Currant. They are very hearty and grow really fast!

I think what you may have is a sassafras. You can look at the images in the link and see.

I found it by searching sassafras flowers images on Google.

Here is a link that might be useful: Sassafras flowers
