It cropped up as a baby in my backyard of badly patchy grass. I never had the heart to pull it as a weed and would go around it with the mower. Two years later, it's the only thing left in my dirt yard now that I'm preparing the soil for a new garden.

What is it? If I'm going to keep this sucker, I'd like to know its name. ;)
