Well, the leaves look like it. It's either that or maybe a plant called Creeping Zinnia whose latin name is Sanvitalia ~ the leaves look like the ones in your picture and the blooms are yellow, but the centers are darker, I think.

Dinu: It is Melampodium [Leucanthemum Paludosum] It is an annual. I use it where you would plant Marigolds. Also very good in containers. It blooms all summer.

You beat me to it, lol. I finally found one I know what it is!! It reseeds really good and the mildew doesn't affect it as badly as it does zinnias.
