The name of Burnweed comes from the fact that it quickly colonizes areas that were burned. I've not seen it in burned area. The location of these pictures is in a wet area that was lawn and then let go. It was quite a number of years before I saw any, but then last year I saw some of the plants and this year there were quite a bunch of them.
This plant is edible although there is a high variability of opinions on how good it tastes. I'll have to try it next year if it comes up again.
