The picture (at least on't check the other one) is a Coreopsis, and there is a pink-flowered cultivar of Coreopsis called 'American Dream' so that is likely what they're selling.

I would contact the seller & ask

It would not be the first time a human made
an error.

Always better to ask in advance rather than
the hassle of purchasing, planting & later
discovering it was the wrong plant !
