In the visitor's area of a fenced dog training arena, denuded completely of grasses by trampling, but covered by a monoculture of this species.
Plants prostrate, the numerous stems radiating out of a taproot that decays at the end of the season. Evidently native in western US but obviously a tolerated weed here. b
