Plantaginaceae. Europe, Asia. H 0.15m x L 0.2m. Z5. Perennial. Common Plantain is a wild plant with broad leaves in rosette very frequent in France and Western Europe. Plantago major is a medicinal plant in our western pharmacopoeia with many properties: Astringent, Softener, Depurative, Diuretic, Expectorant, Hemostat, Laxative, Ophthalmic, Refrigerant and Anthelmintic. We know that Roman soldiers already used its haemostatic properties to stop their bleeding and promote healing of the wounds on their feet possibly caused by long marches, by adding leaves of Plantain in their shoes. Very young leaves taken from the central bud can be added raw to a salad to flavor it with porcini aromas.

The variety rubrifolia proposed here has a particularly decorative foliage with deep purple hues, superimposed on soft greens or exclusive depending on sun exposure. A decorative form rarely offered in nursery catalogs, to be installed in the front of flower beds for its beautiful and permanent color touch. Sow in godets in March-April and plant in place in May, exposure partial shade or full sun, any type of soil. A plant that even bears being trampled. Watch for its production of seeds by regularly removing the spikes when they appear: you will get a more beautiful foliage and avoid spontaneous propagation. 1 packet of 0.1g (hundreds of seeds).
