As long as it doesn't grow MASSIVE, and doesn't suffocate other plants, and if it's pretty, then yeah!
What color is it? Can I get some seed, please?
I would hate to have it "get loose" in a larger area such as pasture or along a creek but it seems to work for me in the one area I let it grow. All the others that get transplanted around the yard have a hard time reseeding, those are "high weeding traffic" areas and they are very easy to identify before flowering. It has a shallow root system which helps immensely!
My new weed that seems to be over-propagating is nightshade, I had no clue what that pretty little shooting star shaped purple flower was, just a semi-vine that showed up one day a few years ago so I let it be... I think it was you @digitS' that mentioned having a bank of it that you were off to mow down so I googled it, yep, deadly nightshade! Only the one plant for 3 years but now this year it has popped up in several other places. Off to eradicate I go, hi ho, hi hoe.
Now that I know there is more than the one kind... a google leads me to believe it is bittersweet nightshade. The enchanter's flower isn't right.Deadly nightshade fruits are round and black, enchanters are egg shaped and red.
