|What is the purple flower that grows all over where ever you plant it and it looks like moss? I think it is so pretty and would love to get me some. Thank You|

|I'm guessing you may be referring to creeping thyme? If it doesn't look something like these pictures, can you let us know what is different about the one you're looking for?
Another possibility may be creeping phlox

|Stephanie, I'm not sure what plant you are referring to but I'm assuming it's a low growing variety since you say it grows like moss? Is this plant currently in bloom anywhere in your area? Can you get any photos to post, showing leaves and/or blooms?
Hopefully someone in your area will know exactly what plant you are thinking of and be able to offer an ID.
One that comes to mind is Henbit (Lamium amplexicaule)
Another that comes to mind is Creeping Charlie (Glechoma hederacea)
