Pretty Flower or Noxious Weed?

These plants have been popping up all over the backyard. And I'm hoping they're a drought resistant perennial. A native, low maintenance plant that is also attractive. The blossoms are open in the morning but close up in the heat of midday.

If it's a good plant, I'll dig them up and move them all together, maybe as a border around the flagstone patio. If they turn out to be weeds, I'll be a little sad as I dig them up and compost them. This is the sort of plant that my brown thumb yearns for.
