Blackseed Plantain (Plantago rugelii)


Division - Magnoliaphyta
Class - Magnoliopsida
Subclass - Asteridae
Order - Plantaginales
Family - Plantaginaceae
Genus - Plantago

This plant has nothing to do with the banana-like fruit called the plantain. It is a common garden weed. It is invasive and, to be frank, not the prettiest plant in sight by a long shot. It commonly grows in sidewalk cracks and out of other such places. It can be differentiated from common plantain by its red stalks.
