SOLVED: Need name for ground cover?

Kentwood, LA(Zone 8b)

This plant spreads by root runners like mint, has clusters of white to lavender flowers that are on a two foot stem.The leaves are going up the flower stem also.

this is very invasive and hard to get rid of. This is the leaves.

Could it be Phlox paniculata? The picture is a bit blurry but that is what it looks like.

Busybee, do you have a photo of it a bit further away?

At present I agree with Poppysue (sorry Badseed!) It could be Saponaria officinalis alba plena, the double white soapwort

LOL I don't need to be right Baa. :) I have not grown Saponaria in a few years and had the single blue. It was the two foot stems that made me think Phlox.

I hope this one is better.

Thanks to all of you. I think it looks like the double soapwort in the photos.

Busybee, you have the pretties white flowers growing! I finally started the seeds of that white moonflower bush, and they are coming along just fine. -- Jean
