These are growing in my neighbor's yard and she has offered me some. Groundcover, pretty plant, I'd like to know it's name and habits before I bring it home.

Close up of single flower and showing the dark green needle-like foliage:

Two groupings showing its growth habit a little bit:

Neighbor says it spreads readily which I like.

Well, those are mighty similar but I see some differences, especially in the leaf form but also in the flower petal shape. I don't know if that could be due to growing conditions, or perhaps this is a different variety?

But, darn tootin' close! and maybe that's it....

Argh. I was about to accept the first suggestion, but the Lithodora is a perfect match. So, thanks!
