If only you could smell this heavenly plant exhibited below - when it's leaves are crushed the exquisite cardamom scent is released in abundance! 

Although it is known commonly as False Cardamom (because it does not produce true cardamom pods), you can still extract the aromatics to flavour your culinary delights through heating / bruising its foliage. It grows best in partial shade making it perfect for an understorey planting or for the indoors.
