I found several as they heaved out of the soil over this past winter, but a few got away from me.
Can anyone tell me the name of this plant?

Could it be Lantana?

No, I know lantana...

This is a very short groundcover. Evergreen. Blooming now.

It looks a lot like Erysimum. Look at the leaves of Erysimum senoneri subsp. senoneri, I wonder if it's a hybrid of that.

Now I see why you thought it might be a wallflower...
But I don't think so.
I'll get a better "closeup"................
