Another option is Galium odoratum however I think this grows closer to the ground and yours look fairly tall.

Really 15 cm? Why so low over the whole area? That's ground cover. Can you cope with some semi-evergreens? All these low (semi or full) evergreens are doing well on my Welsh clay. Things like low-growing dianthus, Stachys bizantina (Lambs ears) doesn't say clay on the instruction, but it's growing vigorously in my clay here in Wales, Veronica prostrata, Veronica spicata (the spikes are quite airy on the white ones), violas (if you can bear to plant anything in the autumn and again in the early summer), rock soapwort and creeping thyme (might need a bit of sand and gravel in the digging hole), Galium odoratum (sweet woodruff) is not, technically, evergreen, but it doesn't disappear completely - the dry stems make a carpet. What do you reckon?

That looks like sweet woodruff (Galium odoratum) to me.
