Plantain Family Plantaginaceae


The plantain family is one of those groups of plants that do not seem to have a flower in the accepted sense, they are more like sedges perhaps? It is a small family with five species but so far I have only found four in Dorset but I know sea plantain occurs here.

The information about this group of species has been organised into reports, charts, maps and photos. Click a pic below to see the detail:
