    @silvertipgrizz Wow!!! Gorgeous. I have never seen this before so I had to do some research, which indicates that it does have the same medicinal properties as its green brother. Sure would be higher in antioxicants. How beautiful with young leaves added to a salad. Thanks for sharing!

    I took a look at the website that sells this plant. They offer so many interesting seeds! I will be browsing their pages for this spring.

    @silvertipgrizz As far as I know all the wild plantago varieties are healing plants, but I do not know whether it is a wild one or some modified version. I am always a bit suspicious about newly derived versions of plants.
