I am still comfortable with that being a young, well grown Saponaria. The leaf structure is the indicator to me. And I agree with Pfg, it will start to crawl with age. There is an old adage that in the first year perennials leap, the second year they creep.

Mine was an heirloom, an unidentified passalong received in 2005. I don't have a close up of the leaves but the first photo was when it was newly started in ground at my house. The second was a bloom when I was searching for an ID.

By the end of our summer it looks terrible but it has never failed to return. I mulch it for winter although it never dies back in this warmer zone.
