Verbena pulchella ssp. gracilior

If you're looking for a very prostrate ground cover this might meet your needs. Compared to other verbenas, Rock verbena has very delicate, lacy foliage, and a flat growth habit, to about 8 inches tall by 4 feet wide. Its flowers are a more subtle shade of purple than those of Sandpaper verbena. Like Verbena gooddingii, Rock verbena can be short-lived, but naturalizes in the landscape. It is hardy to 20 F. USDA Zone 9.
