Description
 
Plantago coronopis Also know as 'minutina' or 'herbs stella', this plant is native to the coast of Europe, including Britain and Ireland. The young leaves are edible raw or cooked and will thrive outside during the sinter, making it useful for spring salads. The leaves are mild but with a slight bitterness that makes them interesting especially wen mixed with blander leaves. The flower buds can also be eaten, lightly cooked. Older leaves benefit for blanching before adding to salads. This leaf is one of the ingredients of 'misticanze', a salad mixture of wild and cultivated leaves that originated in the Marche region of Italy. The seeds can be reluctant to germinate in warm weather and will benefit from a cold spell. Best sown in early spring or autumn. It is often perennial.
