    Among all the different species of plantain, this one tends to stay true to form. That is, it does not tend to intergrade with other species. A powerful plant, you can see the way it pushes aside competition (main photo, Oregon Coast, Yachats). I have successfully introduced this plantain to my upland gardens (not close to the sea) and find that it overwinters successfully and provides a very solid presence. It makes me feel good when I see it, and the mower goes–around it. All the plantains are full of astringent tannins and they also contain the cell-proliferant allantoin. Anyone interested in healing with herbs knows plantain, and to know it in its many guises is a learning worth doing. richo
