Plantago major

Broadleaf plantain is a large (3- to 6-inch diameter), low-growing, perennial weed in Pennsylvania lawns. Leaves grow in a rosette fashion and are spoon-shaped with wavy margins. Prominent veins run lengthwise on the leaf surface. Seedheads are long (5 to 10 inches) and are covered with seeds that adhere tightly to the stalk. Broadleaf plantain has a thick tap root that grows deep into the soil.
