Plantain, Giant Turkish

No image set

The largest Plantain in the world. I have always had a fascination with gigantic forms of familiar plants. This plantain can reach 4 feet in height in fertile soil with gigantic leaves that lend a tropical feel to your landscape. Same medicinal virtues of any plantain with plenty of leaf matter for feeding your chickens, goats or using for compost. Definitely an unusual cultivar that will attract attention on the garden tour. =Grows well in sun or shade. Perennial. Hardy to zone 4.

Latin Name Plantago major
