Red Leaved Plantain
Sure it's a weed, but if your going to have a yard full of Plantains it might as well be the red leaved type instead of the green one. Lime free soils that are dry and well draining. Part shade to full sun. Plants have tall spiky flowers that reach 24 inches, leaves are roundish and held out flat over the ground. The wide flat leaves and flower spikes are reddish purple with colored veins. Darkest coloration in full sun.
Very lightly cover seeds and use F 70, germination in 5-35 days. Bright light is needed for best germination.
