Plantago lanceolata "Variegated"

25th February 2006

This is a wild seedling found growing in the garden. It has produced some rather quaint pinkish colour during the winter.

Twenty years ago Dick Ide gave me a plant of his marvellous Plantago lanceolata 'Streaker', which is very like this, but more upright in growth. As I recall, he found it growing on a hedge bank in Eire.

There is also a form called 'Binstead Picador', but I have not yet seen it.
