Looks like you have a Euphorbia polychroma (Cushion Spruge).

Here are a couple of links that will tell you more about your plant: http://www.perennials.com/seeplant.html?item=1.208.100

My neighbor has a clump of this plant. I'm hoping that it will reseed this year so that I can ask her for a piece for my garden! Begonia

Euphorbia polychroma it is! Easy to start from seed, easy to grow. Z6

If the flowers get pink when in full bloom, it looks like what we call crown vetch around here. If so it spreads very easy and bees like it. They plant the seeds along our county roads here.
