Five leaf wetland weed?

I began noticing this weed last year in the lower area of our property. It grows along with Dollar Weed. I've been trying to get a identification of it. It's possible it came from various seed mixes that we've spread throughout the years but I no longer have the bags to verify.

Wildlife seems to love eating the stuff. I personally don't mind the weed as it covers the ground very well and quickly. It's also very simple to remove as it's root system only goes a few inches deep and the plant can be pulled with a mere tug.

I'm wanting to know what it's actual name is so that I can do further research on the plant.

That's it. It actually looks like a semi useful native plant. Wiki says it used to be used as a astringent?
