Plantago lanceolata 'Golden Spears'



7th June 2009


An odd form of Plantain, the new growth is golden but it rapidly turns green and for most of the season it looks like an ordinary weed. Dull and delightful.

This shows it at it's golden spearing best. I am inclined to harden my heart and learn to live without it having spent several years making quite sure it doesn't set any seed. I'm not sure if I want one, I am certain I don't want a hundred.
