Plantain Purple Perversion


A plantain with wonderful deep purple frilly leaves, growing small white flowers on a spike. A hard working modern heirloom perennial ‘edimental’, its young leaves can be eaten raw or cooked, just treat like spinach in the kitchen. Great in soups, stews, curries and salads alike.

Huge thanks to Baker Creek Seeds for the beautiful photography
