“Chinese plantain”

The chinese plantain can be found here and there in the field. The white very small flowers on the spikes are carried by the wind when they become seeds. They are also carried on the hair of animals and the back of shoes. This grass was once used for folk medicine. It is one of the most familiar plants in human life.  [JUNE 2021]
