Greater Plantain

I think I've done Ribwort Plantain, the commonest plant in Europe I heard or read somewhere. And I've also done Buck's Horn Plantain. 
This is Greater Plantain, also everywhere near you now in flower. It's binomial is Plantago major. The leaves have been used as a wound poultice to promote healing and reduce infection for centuries, but they are also edible.
