Paleseed plantain is a winter annual, sometimes a biannual. The leaves form in a basal rosette. The leaves are oblanceolate in shape, usually having smooth edges, soft hairs and ranging from 2 to 4-inches in length. Paleseed plantain forms a taproot. Paleseed plantain spreads from seed that is produced from flowers present in late spring. The seedhead is formed in a rat tail shape similar to broadleaf plantain. Paleseed plantain is found in many parts of North America.
