Hi
We were sold these as dianthus plugs, they are now getting bushy and spreading quite quick in a rockery. Doubting now that they are dianthus.....

It looks a lot like Diodia virginiana.

Welcome!

What kind of dianthus were they supposed to be?

It does look similar to Sweet William foliage here.

Yes, I was thinking they could actually be dianthus, depending which one. There are some pictures of various dianthus leaves from Google here:

Doesn't look like any Dianthus I've seen, and certainly not Sweet William. It looks more like a creeping Phlox or similar alpine type plant.

Most likely Dianthus deltoides.
