It looks like a very fancy Carnation...or the leaves and calyx do.


Found it...Dianthus Cherry burst.

quote wiki...."Dianthus is a genus of about 300 species of flowering plants in the family Caryophyllaceae, native mainly to Europe and Asia, with a few species extending south to north Africa, and one species (D. repens) in arctic North America. Common names include carnation"

Looked at www .....Thompson and Morgan are the only company with the pics that look a match.
You are right all other pics show a very very different Dianthus.

Shown in May 2019 at the Chelsea Flower show by Lovania nursery.
Looks nothing like Thompson and Morgan pic.

OK Dianthus...but back to the drawing board for a name.
