The photos above show the Dwarf Cardamom planted at 1m centres. In only one year, this is the result obtained.

A smaller dwarf version of our popular False Cardamom ginger. Makes an excellent landscaping and screening plant with its dense growth habit. Without a doubt, its best feature is the fragrant and spicy foliage.

Alpinia - May be grown in full sun provided plants are given adequate water, though plants will look their best when provided with afternoon shade.
