Plantain Identification

Long leaf is the most common in the United States, varying in size. All varieties are equally potent. Leaves dark green, long and slender, usually not much more than an inch wide. Long veins that run longitudinally down the leaf. The flowerstalks stand predominately above the leaves. Broad leaf plantain has oblong, roundish leaves that are usually more crumpled in appearance. Same characteristic veins running down entire leaf.
