Plant indentification

Asked June 29, 2020, 4:42 PM EDT

By the attached picture can you tell the name of the plant. My yard is full of this evasive plant and I would like to know what spray I can use on the plant. I don't want to kill the grass what there is of it that is left in those areas where the plant has totally taken over.

Hello. Happy to help.

It is a common plantain (Plantago major) a non-native weed. Here is more information about it from the Minnesota Wildflowers website: https://www.minnesotawildflowers.info/flower/common-plantain

I hope this information helps.
