I have lots of these in the garden. What is it and is it good or bad for other plants around the garden? Thank you

Probably Venus' Looking Glass, Triodanis perfoliata. I think it is an annual. It is native, but most people pull it out...not good or bad, depending on what you want. All plants take up space, water, and nutrients, so if you have too many, other plants will have to "share."
