Ornamental herb with pink flowers giving an impression of Silene, but I think it should be something else. Pl. help in ID.

The white form is not a different species, though... it's just a white form of Centranthus ruber, so it's written as Centranthus ruber 'Albus'.

Alta,
I don't know where I saw that name-form, but you are correct.
It's 'Albus'; like Dumbledore ;)
