This species of plantain with a broadly Mediterranean distribution is present in Liguria and in all regions of Central, Southern and Insular Italy, except in Umbria. It generally grows along the coasts, on sandy or rocky shores, sometimes also on weakly saline soils. The species is rare in the outer belt of the Sardinian temporary ponds, in contact with dry grasslands. The genus name is derived from the Latin 'planta' (sole of the foot), since in some species the leaves have this form, or because several species are able to withstand heavy trampling; the species is dedicated to the botanist Franz Ludwig von Welden (1782-1853). Flowering period: March to October.



Italian name(s): Piantaggine di Welden (Italia)
