Woolly plantain

Up close, they're different all over again. Being easy to recognize was probably one reason Indians liked this one. A variety of peoples used woolly plantain for a variety of ceremonial and medical needs. The Navajo used a concoction for babies when they spoil. Turns out that means when they have colic. The Hopi hoped it made people more agreeable. Wouldn't that be nice!
