  1. PLANTAGO CORONOPUS

    Probably the prettiest and daintiest of all of the plantains, this diminutive perennial plant occurs in dry, open, often heavily trampled, habitats on acidic to basic stony or sandy soils and rock crevices, as well as sea-cliffs and sea-walls. But incredibly it is very rarely noticed. It makes an attractivev dwarf addition to the rock garden or the edge of pathways where it pushes out its tiny 'poker' flowers in spring and summer, from rosettes of pretty frilly leaves. It is often known as “minutina” or “herba stella,” and is used mostly in salads or as a garnish.
