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.
