People who want perfect lawns that look more like astroturf than anything alive will never tolerate this "nasty weed" because it easily spreads into turf, keeping its leaves low to evade being too mowed down. But it is sometimes offered in nursery catalogs, particularly by wildflower specialists (although given its ubiquity I would recommend just taking one from a roadside or ditch, or save & care for one that is already in the yard). Whoever delights in species wildflowers will be rewarded by feeding & encouraging a couple of these, discovering thereby the extreme edge of their beauty which is hardly less than any cultivar cranesbill.
