Another wild plant seen in Fremont, growing wild in a field on 28/9/14.
Thanks for suggesting Plantago.
I had thought so too, but wasn’t too sure.
impossible to make out the flower
leaves are narrower than the plantago usually seen here
I have cropped one of the pictures for a better look at the flowers.
ok thanks … flowers remind of plantain
the thin ribbon like leaf and parallel venation…
colloquially called ribbon plantain…
but they can be tricky to label botanically
It is Plantago. A key to the species is available at http://ucjeps.berkeley.edu/cgi-bin/get_IJM.pl?key=9825
Plantago lanceolata is one possibility.
