There was some introduced Bachelor Button and Foxglove in the vicinity, so wondering if this is an introduced ornamental or a wildflower ?

There are a lot of native Silenes in Oregon but they can be difficult to identify without the actual plant or very detailed photos. Here's a link to silenes found in Oregon:

Thanks for the bump, purple!

Katlian, thanks for the link. I just finished looking through the Silene image gallery there, looking for a match. Most of the silenes there have fringed or lobed petals, and none are reddish with white edging . . . s'pose it could still be a variety of one of the plainer ones with entire petals. I also looked at the Dianthus image gallery there . . . no matches.

Still stumped!
