I have tried to id this one but I couldn't find a good match. You maybe already knew that Lychnis is very closely related to Silene. Some species of Lychnis have moved into Silene or the other way around. So maybe you could do more research into Lychnis.

Just my suggestion. Hopefully someone comes along and recognizes it for you.

Highly probable that is indeed a good match. This one is tough to crack or maybe I'm just naive.

Thanks Rlalique, vngarden and growin
We seem to have found the ID.
I will confirm on my next visit in summer any way.
I usually take side view of flower, somehow missed in this one.
