Broadleaf Plantain (Plantago majo)

Perennial, broadleaf

RANGE: Throughout the United States and southern Canada.

APPEARANCE: Broadleaf plantain has gray-green, egg-shaped, wavy-edged leaves growing in ground-hugging rosettes. Narrow seed heads appear in a long cluster on a central, upright stem.

GROWTH: Rosettes appear in midspring in thin and weakened turf. Seed stalks rise from early summer through September. The rosette has a tendency to suffocate desirable lawn grasses. Plantain grows from seed and resprouting roots. Seed germinates best in rich, moist, compacted soil.
