I don't know the name of this flower and neither did my wife. They are within a bush-like plant that hugs close to the ground but spreads out and completely covers the ground. When these flowers bloom they completely cover the plant. This particular cropping hasn't reached full bloom yet and even though there are several there, they don't cover the plant completely yet.
Took some pics of these flowers last year but none were as crisp as this one and I don't remember the orange stem reaching out of the center of last year's shots.
