Originally native to Southeast Asia, Chloranthus erectus (Chloranthus) is a large shrub that can reach heights of 5-10 feet tall, or a smaller plant of around 2-5 feet if pruned. The plant prefers semi-shade but can tolerate direct sunlight, and requires regular water but not too much. It can be grown in USDA zones 8-11.

Chloranthus erectus is primarily grown for its ethnomedical uses. It is a powerful herb and a traditional remedy for treating common and severe diseases, from allergies to cancer. The plant can also be used as a spice or herb for flavoring, with its active ingredients able to provide anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant benefits.

When growing Chloranthus erectus it's important to provide the right environment. The plant prefers semi-shade to direct sunlight, and should be planted in well-draining soil. Water regularly with moderate amounts, allowing the soil to dry out slightly before watering again. In cold climates, containers can be used to bring the plant indoors during winter.

This variety of cinnamon has large 10"-12" long leaves which are highly aromatic as much as bark that is used for commercial cinnamon. Cinnamon is an evergreen shrub or small tree with dark, leathery, aromatic, veined leaves, numerous inconspicuous yellow flowers and blackish berries. In cultivation young trees are cut back twice a year and sucker shoots develop from the roots. These long slender shoots furnish the bark that is the commercial product. Leaves are used as tea. Cinnamon is a very popular culinary spice and is also used in candy, gum, incense, toothpaste and perfumes. The oil is used in medicine as a carminative, antiseptic and astringent and source of cinnamon extract.
