Purple Perversion Plantain

100% of 100

A pretty twist on a potent medicinal plant. Extra frilly, deep plum-colored leaves and long flowering stalks. An excellent choice for those who wish to grow plantain but prefer a more refined variety without the “weedy” appearance of the naturalized green type. With edible, lightly bitter leaves this variety lends color to salads and makes a fine spinach substitute. The leaves can be used externally as a natural soothing remedy for bites, burns, rashes and poison ivy. The perfect herbal ornamental!
