Cliffnotes: It was brought here by europeans because they ate it like spinach, it is used for many many medicinal purposes etc.

Cool! When I was little my best friends grandmother taught us about using plantain for sunburn and making a poltace for skinned knees and such. Didn't know it could be eaten or made into tea.
