MORE INFORMATION

Plantain, also called Broadleaf Plantain and Great Plantain, is a rugged, low-growing plant that easily tolerates poor soil conditions, heat and constant foot traffic. In fact, for people who insist on maintaining a perfectly manicured lawn, plantain is considered a persistent nuisance plant.

While plantain thrives with little requirements, this little plant has served as a nutritious source of food in times of scarcity. The leaf is abundant in vitamins A and B1 and several minerals, including calcium.
