detailed seed-starting info below

This one is supposed to have olive-green leaves, with pink buds that open to pale pink flowers with darker veins. Not much information online, and the sources I did find were not consistent. I'll have to find out for myself.
Started blooming sparsely in June of its first year. Flowers look just like Silene maritima to me, but the leaves are rounded, or very slightly pointed, whereas the other species has much pointier leaves.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
