    Here is another pink flower in our garden, name unknown. The urn-shaped receptacles left behind after the petals fall remind me of a Silene, but the petals on this are quite different.

    Any idea what it is?

    Thanks, David.

    I looked up Rhexia in a couple of wildflower guides, and ours seem to be Rhexia virginica, Virginia Meadow-Beauty.
