Pale Indian Plantain
Perennial plant with a single stem, a silvery coating, widely spaced leaves, and a terminal, spreading inflorescence. Flowerheads in a flat-topped, loose corymb (the center flowers bloom first). White disk florets are surrounded by long, stiff green bracts. Blooms June–October. Leaves are pale green above, silvery white (glaucous) below. They stand out obliquely and are irregularly shaped with pointed lobes, the lower ones wider than long, to 6 inches wide. The leaves become smaller higher up the stem.
