Plantago lagopoides Desf.

Plantago amplexicaulis is an annual plant of the family Plantaginaceae and the genus Plantago that grows in dry sand and deserts.[3]

Plantago amplexicaulis is a therophyte, a type of plant that survives as seed during unfavourable conditions. In the deserts where P. amplexicaulis lives, this results in the desert suddenly bursting into bloom after a rainstorm.[4]
