This low-growing plant is a nuisance in lawns and gardens, as well
as occurring in neglected places as its name implies.
It grows from a long tap root, and spreads widely on the ground.
The blossoms are white or pale pink, with pink veins.
They are almost an inch across.
One of its many common names, "cheeses", is from the shape of the
seed, which supposedly resembles an uncut cheese. To me, this seed
looks more like a small button. (Another common name is "buttonweed".)
