An attractive species of plantain with culinary and medicinal uses. Produces a large, round, basal rosette of maroon-colored leaves, 5" across. Leafless seed stalks bear bronze-maroon seed capsules which make a pleasant asparagus-flavored nibble. Traditionally plantain has been used as a potherb. This species is more tender than common plantain.

Medicinal: Astringent, anti-inflammatory, vulnerary, and anti-microbial. Often used as a poultice for stings and cuts. Stimulates healing.
