Plantain, Narrow-leaved (Plantago lanceolata), packet of 100 seeds, organic (not available to IN)

$2.95

Family:  Plantain (Plantaginacea)

Hardy to Zones 5 to 9

(Narrow Leaved Plantain, Lance Leaved Plantain, English Plantain, Buckhorn Plantain, Ribwort Plantain)
Herbaceous or evergreen perennial. Native to Europe and introduced worldwide.  Traditional usage (TWM): astringent, wound healing, ulcerations.   The lance leaves make this plant a good grass cohabitor, and the plant is better at surviving and thriving in drought than the broad-leaved types. In other words, if your gardens tend to be wild, weedy and on the dry side, this narrow-leaved plantain may perform better for you! Sow seed on surface of cool soil and keep evenly moist until germination.  Space plants 6 inches to 1 foot apart.

100 seeds/pkt. Certified Organically Grown

This packet is not available to the states of Indiana.

    I am living in Dar es Salaam Tanzania, it is a tropical country, would the seeds grow in such a climate? If yes can you supply two packets?

      Hello Elice, Dar-es is well known to me. Plantain will grow almost anywhere it is introduced. It needs warm garden soil, not a cold winter. Salama sana kutoka mwananchi, nimekaa Pemba na ninahamia sana kurudi!

      In North Carolina, USA I have Lanceolata growing wild. It survives in the weedy lawn but fluorishes around the edges of my heavily mulched garden bed where I planted it to use as green mulch throughout the summer. It survives the chickens and partially overwinters depending on how much snow and sub freezing temps – but always comes back bigger and thicker each year. I love it for impromptu bug bites and wound care. Once I snipped a wedge in my fingertip. I chewed and applied a wad of plantain, held it tightly, and within 30 seconds it stopped the bleeding , pain, and with repeated applications, it started healing within a day and was like new in a week or so.
