Buck’s horn plantain Plantago coronopus

Best Time to See
Habitat Grassland

A rather individual plant: slender stems bearing four-petalled flowers arch from the centre of a rosette of toothed leaves.

It's the latter which give this plantain its name as they are said to resemble the horn of a male deer.


Near sea, on rocks, cliffs, dry grasslands, inland paths and roadsides.
