Plantago: Shakespeare, Potions, and One Mad Terrier

FROM: PULLUPYOURPLANTS.COM

The latest article is on a plant that most Medium denizens will have no problem finding. Simply walk to a grass lawn, extend your arm (palm upward), and swing it in a dramatic fashion to your right. Chances are, you just presented an active plantago habitat to yourself.

Plantago has an incredible history in relation to humankind as a medicine going back to when we were just a weeeeeeeeee toddling lot. Plantago has found its way into multiple Shakespearian plays, poetic works by Akenside, John Armstrong, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Rudyard Kipling, Richard Lovelace, Chinese, and Irish legend.

If you are a jealous soul, this plant’s portfolio may inspire you to burn yours and scatter the ashes in the deadest part of the ocean.

If you are a kind soul, plantago may inspire you with its singular perseverance.
