Description

OxleyNursery.com says: “False Cardamom is a great evergreen ginger, fantastic for filling mid-ground spaces in tropical or subtropical gardens.   Larger clumps will produce a white flower.

Perhaps the best feature of the plant is the fragrant foliage. It smells somewhere between cinnamon and citrus. False Cardomom is a joy to prune!

sowexotic.com says,  ‘False’ varieties of cardamom are harvested for their leaves, not seeds as when you grow ‘true’ varieties of cardamom. Use  leaves the same way you would use other cardamom plant varieties to spice up your life: The leaves add flavoring to chai teas, desserts, rice, fish, and more. ”
