Plantains

Humble plants, often overlooked, but very common and found growing all over the place. They come in tall varieties and short ones. Lawn mowers try to exterminate them but they keep returning. I am talking about Plantains (Plantago spp.). They may not be very pretty and colourful but they are interesting and attractive in their own way. The cream flowers borne on tall stalks certainly provide a useful feeding station for insects.
