Alpinia nutans or Dwarf cardamon is a tropical, small growing, clumping , ginger that has a lovely spicy fragrance when rubbed .
Its dense clumping habit makes it great for mass planting or borders. Can also be used in pots, but will need to be divided as it fill the pot.
It will grow to around 1.5m in height and can be grown in full sun to semi shade in well drained soil. Although it will do better without the hot afternoon sun.
It has a dainty shell like flower from Spring through Summer. Can be grown anywhere here in South East Queensland.
