    I need to replace some of this an have no idea what it is. It kind of looks like a creeping thrift but the leaves are differant. I am in eastern NC an it blooms early spring.

    That looks like Phlox subulata...common name creeping or mossy Phlox
    It looks wonderful in the spring.

    There are many named cultivars depending on which colour you want
