Went on a walk today on a new parkway. I noticed these beautiful pink, white and peach flowers that have been planted on both sides of the walkway. I know the orange flowers are poppies. Can anyone identify the other flowers? Thanks.

Could you add a closer photo? I'm guessing that they may be double-flowered Clarkia amoena, rather than Clarkia unguiculata ("elegant clarkia")... ? May be wrong, but a closer photo would easily solve it.

Clarkia unguiculata has rather oddly shaped petals:

I will have to go back and take some close ups. I enlarged a couple of photos, but the detail is not that great.

On second thought, the doubles I'm thinking of do appear to be double-flowered C. unguiculata!
