Plantain, Plantago major, is also known as Large Leaf Plantain and Common Plantain. Plantain is a  particularly good poulticing herb (this plant can really pull). Called Weybroed by the Anglo-Saxon, it was one if their nine sacred herbs. A gentle yet persistent antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory action. Young leaves are a good addition to salads at any  time of year. Plantain is native to Europe and North America. Adaptable to most soils and positions. Drought and frost tolerant. A perennial, growing to 0.6m x 0.3m.
