Can anyone identify this?

I planted some seeds this spring and made the mistake of not labelling what I planted or where. Can't remember for the life of me what I had.
If someone can help me out, I would much appreciate it!
(We're in Zone 3 if that helps. It is in a mostly shaded area, only receives early morning sun)

Looks like one of the cultivars of the Silene family......possibly Silene caroliniana

It would be helpful to see a close up of the leaves ....

The flower is Silene armeria L. (None-so-Pretty or Catchfly Caryophyllaceae)
