Last year's seed exchanges brought some seeds labeled Polemonium viscosum. The seedlings were obviously not that, but I kept the plants out of curiosity. A year later, they are blooming, and appear to be some kind of lychnis/silene. Is it an identifiable variety?

It does look like Silene, maybe Ragged Robin (Silene flos-cuculi) ?
