In Alternanthera philoxeroides, the leaves are sessile and rounded as in this specimen, and fruits are petiolate, not sessile as in this specimen. This could be Alternanthera sp.A
There are several useful photos on CNM you could check for your specimen.
if Bragg St swales, then the location needs to be edited.

Thanks very much, Jane, I wasn't really sure if this was alligator weed, but I thought I'd check :)
