This is an unknown ground cover. It stands between 4 and 6 inches tall and produces a pale pink flower. It is just beginning to flower and will continue to bloom until fall. The flowers have 5 petals and it has the look of a single bloom amenome(sp). Now the petals on the flowers seem to thin until you don't really see them before they reach the center of the flower so the stamen seems to be sitting in the middle all by it's self. And the stamen is yellow and very delicate in appearance. It seems to multiply by root and it really spreads over the winter because their is new growth through out the area where I started 4 little clumps last year.

I really appreciate your help.
