Brass Button
Cotula australis

Brass Button, Cotula australisUsually I find brass buttons as scattered, individual weeds in my lawn or garden.  This patch was in someone else's lawn.  My attention was first called to the brass buttons because its stem and leaves are very similar to those of the lawn burweed.

Brass Button, Cotula australisThe brass button plant branches right from the top of its single tap root.  Its leaves are sort of feathery.

Brass Button, Cotula australisThe flower head is on a relatively long peduncle (stem).  The one on the right still has some of the fruit attached.
