English Plantain (Plantago lanceolata). Legendary herb used for centuries, many benefits having been ascribed to this plant. The leaves sometimes cooked for greens. Plants form a low rosette of leaves,10-20" in diameter. In time a bare, tall flower-stem emerges from the crown, reminiscent in a way of tiny cattails. Some small birds relish the seeds in season, and the plant hosts several species of moths. This common plant has naturalized widely but we offer an improved strain.

What are the pros? Easy to Grow, Good medicinal

What are the cons? zero!


Central Texas grower. I grew this for use in a wound balm but was disappointed to find that my dog had eaten it's leaves to the ground. It came back thankfully no matter how he munched it. Soon he stopped eating it and I found out he had gotten into rat poison (a discovery after "poopy patrol"). After checking on the internet, I found out that plantain is high in vitamin K and he was self medicating (He also went after the lovage). He's fine and the plant grew back healthier than ever. Now I keep this plant and several herbs out for the dogs to get at in case they need the greens or the medicine. It can take the abuse and I have better peace of mind knowing they have a recourse if they aren't feeling well. Can't recommend it enough!
