Richardia brasiliensis

Short-lived perennial herb with prostrate trailling stems. A weed from South America, naturalized in disturbed places, particularly in the warmer parts of eastern South Africa, here from Johannesburg. Common in crops (especially in sugarcane) and lawns of golf courses as it survives the effects of mowing.
