Plantago lanceolata* /Plantain Family
This weedy flower is often found in yards and along roadsides. The stamens are very prominent on the flowers. They produce dry pollen which would seem to be wind-spread, however I have often seen bees on the flowers. The tiny white pistils can barely be seen at the top of the flower.
Where seen: Great Smoky Mountain NP, Oak Ridge, Warrior's Path SP, widespread
