Cardamom Leaf Ginger UT
Alpinia nutans
Not to Norfolk Island, NT, SA, TAS or WA
Syn. Shellflower, Dwarf cardamom, False cardamom
Cardamom Leaf Ginger is one of the hardiest members of the ginger family with a wide range of uses. The plant forms good-sized clumps fairly rapidly and can be used as a 1 m tall screen. The evergreen foliage is attractive and can be used to create a tropical feel. The leaves have a very distinctive cardamom fragrance when crushed, although this is not the plant that produces the cardamom pods. Use the leaves in desserts; to add flavour to steamed rice, or to wrap fish. In a herbal tea they are delicious combined with lemongrass and ginger. The flowers are white, shell-like sprays and bloom prolifically. The plants are surprisingly drought tolerant and resistant to pests and diseases. It will grow in full sun but prefers partial shade. One of our favourite uses is to cut and gather armfuls of fragrant leaves for mulching.
Provided as tubestock.

Tasmanian Pepper UT
Tasmannia lanceolata syn. Drimys aromatic
Not to Norfolk Island, NT, SA, TAS or WA
Syn. Tasmanian pepperberry, Native pepper, Mountain pepper
Tasmania's native 'pepper' is a lovely rainforest shrub growing 2 - 5 metres high with glossy, dark green leaves, distinctive crimson stems and small creamy white flowers followed by black berries. It is native to Tasmania and south eastern Australia. It can be used both as an ornamental and a bush tucker plant. Both the berry and leaf are edible - the berry being an alternative to traditional pepper but more nutritious and high in antioxidants, while the leaf is used in a similar way to curry leaf or bay leaf. Both the leaves and fruit contain a hot tasting compound, polygodial, which has a fragrant, spicy taste. Polygodial has attracted scientific attention for its biological properties, as it is both antimicrobial and antifungal. The leaf can be dried, ground to a powder and used in bread and for flavouring meat, mustard, pate and cheese. Both a male and female tree are needed to produce the glossy pea-sized berries. The plant tolerates frosts and requires moist, well-drained acidic soil in a cool position with some shade.
1 male + 1 female plant provided as tubestock.
