False Cardamom Ginger

 

 

Gets 3’ tall with very fragrant broad foliage, part shade, good soil and regular water. Easy. The foliage can also be used to wrap and steam or barbecue fish. We previously had this labeled Elettaria cardamomum, true caramomum, as it was sold to us, but upon blooming, (after 20 years) we got a correct ID.  Smells wonderful when crushed, makes a lush looking compact groundcover under large trees, very good with root competition. Evergreen, good in containers.
