The Lantana guess is not far out: it is certainly something in the region of 
Lippia/Aloysia/Phyla in Verbenaceae. If it is a low prostrate plant with the 
flower heads borne about 1-2 inches above the ground it could be Phyla 
nodiflora, often seen in (rock-) gardening literature as Lippia nodiflora.
