This week a relative small family in our regions; the Plantaginaceae or the Plantains.
It consist of just two genera, Plantago with 7 species and Littorella with just one species.
Each species is a much more humble plant, not really shouting out for attention as some of our plant families covered in earlier blogs.
In my eyes it is an attractive genus with boldness in its various leaf outlines and interesting flower spikes.
Find out about all their uses to us people and our wildlife on the next page.
