Cinnamomum verum

Dried bark strips, bark powder and dried flowers of the small tree Cinnamomum verum. Native to Sri Lanka, C. verum, also known as true cinnamon, is an evergreen of the family Lauraceae. The tree's inner bark is used to make the spice cinnamon, although most of the world's supply comes from several other Cinnamomum species. Sri Lanka produces 80 to 90 per cent of C. verum cinnamon; the tree is also cultivated commercially in the Seychelles and Madagascar.
