Elaeodendron quadrangulatum is an attractive, evergreen tree. Leaves are glabrous, elliptic to ovate.
Elaeodendron quadrangulatum is very similar to Elaeodendron croceum (Saffron Wood) from South Africa. Saffron Wood is medium evergreen tree to tall with a neat, upright shape. The bark is grayish, with a conspicuous layer of a powdery yellow pigment in the freshly exposed bark.
A tree of value. The seeds are mainly used, but are usually poisonous (cyanide) when fresh (though a few races are without cyanide). The seeds can be eaten cooked or roasted, but too much may cause dizziness.
Cardamom makes an attractive addition to the subtropical landscape.
Cardamom is a principal ingredient in curry powders, and is used to flavor confectioneries, liqueurs and chewing gums.
Elegant, upright growing deciduous shrub with arching stems. Excellent foliage for shade gardens, shrub borders, perennial border backgrounds or foundations.
