Whitlow-grass is an early succession plant.  It pops up soon after a place is distubed by fire, erosion, man, or other events that expose bare soil.  The decaying bits it leaves behind help prepare the way for larger, longer term vegetation.  As does the moss that accompanies whitlow-grass in this image.  This was at the edge of a gravel parking area.
