Help A Reader ID This Plant

Plea from Lauren:

Hi Grumpy!

I really need help identifying this ground cover.  I got this at Home Depot a couple years ago and for the life of me I can’t remember what it is called!  I think I remember the word “mountain” was involved in the common name listed on the tag.  It has really pretty, tiny white blooms in spring and spreads rapidly.  If you know what this is it would save me from continuing in my self-inflicted frustration!!

Thanks Grumpy!!  Lauren
OK, Grumpians, how hard could this be? If the plant came from Home Depot, we know it can’t be that rare! So what is it? Grumpy’s first thought was bacopa, (Sutera cordata) but the foliage doesn’t look right. Whoever correctly identifies it first wins an all-expense paid luxury cruise for two to lovely Pine Bluff, Arkansas.

    This looks like Mountain Sandwort, Arenaria montana. Very pretty indeed.
