 Safe to Feed
  • Common Name: Ribwort Plantain (Narrowleaf Plantain, Narrow Leaf Plantain, English Plantain)
  • Latin Name: Plantago lanceolata
  • Family Name: Plantaginaceae
This Plantain is probably the most easily recognised of all the Plantain species and is good tortoise fodder as part of a mixed diet.  The flower stamens are a creamy-white, giving this Plantain the appearance of having a white flower when in fact it is brown.

Do not confuse with the fruit, Plantain, or Water Plantain which are both different plants.
