Plantain is a perennial herb that is edible and medicinal. It is easy to grow and considered a miracle plant by some (its name translates into 'life medicine') or a weed by others.

Comments Warnings : Leaves roots and seeds are all edible. It is a popular medicinal herb. The whole seeds can be boiled and used like sago. Can be a garden escape - keep seed heads harvested to control it.
