I think it may be a type of weed as it grows without any help. Where I saw it was in central America nearby a creek, if that helps…

    I googled central american lawn weeds and found a possible canidate: Calyptocarpus vialis, the only species of this central American genus. It is ‘preadapted’ to be a “troublesome lawn weed” (Correll and Johnston) in that it is a perennial herb “with weak often sprawling stems” that allow the plant to avoid the mower.
