They are not flower of a Plantago plant.
For Plantago alismatifolia, see plants in herbarium, here:
An individual flower in the family Plantaginaceae shown as having four petals. In fact corolla is:
"sympetalous with four lobes" - page 254, Flowering Plant Family by Wendy B.Zomlefer.
(Sympetalous - having united petals, partially or wholly, forming a tube or funnel.)
I think it is a plant in Alismataceae family. They have a generic common name "water-plantain" but are not plantain (Plantaginaceae). Unfortunately common name can easily cause confusion.
Maybe the plant from photo above is in genus Alisma
Like Alisma plantago-aquatica
or Alisma triviale
But I'm not sure about this ID.

|@bonitin can look into this. She may have misidentified the bloom.|

|Thanks a lot Justin for pointing out my mistake, you're right, I looked it up and my plant is Alisma plantago-aquatica. I'll ask to change it.|
