Hello!!! I checked this determination. Looking at this picture, I think this is rather a plant from Caryophyllaceae. Diapensia lapponica forms a cushion and is evergreen. Flowers are on short stalks. It looks rather like some species of Minuartia. Of course, I can be wrong.
Cheers!!! :-)

I think you are right! I didn't pay attention to the foliage but you can see a little of it - it is too bladelike and pale to be diapensia. Amazing how similar the flowers are.
