Sometimes called Tallow Weed in South Texas. Cattle will fatten on it in the spring time. You can find it and bluebonnets on places where the good grasses had been taken by few centuries of cattle grazing. In fact, we've often had these red seeds in native wildflower harvests. We find them very interesting in that if they get wet with rain or heavy dew they become mucilaginous …like chia. Then, when dried again…they are stuck like glue. Sometimes to our bluebonnet seeds or tarps or truck beds.
"Plantain is readily eaten by wildlife and all classes of Livestock and contains high protein values during the winter. Native Americans named it white man’s foot because it would appear in large numbers wherever the soil had been disturbed." - Ricky Linex, Range Plants of North Central Texas
