Can you identify this plant. It looks like a ground cover. We found this at the edge of our woods today 1/4/2020. Is it invasive?

    It’s difficult without its flowers. I have a few ideas but more details are needed to help narrow down. When this plant blooms, please make new post with photos of flowers and side view of the stem/ branch. Thank you & best wishes!

    Looking again at these leaves, I’m wondering perhaps a garden escaped candytuft (Iberis sempervirens)? Again until its flowers this is only a suggestion from one of the “few ideas”. Check out the image from the included link below. Best wishes!
