Help with this Allium

Hi, does anyone know what this is? I lost the tag. 

Thanks, Nicole

Maybe Allium cyathophorum var. farreri.  Just a guess.  If you grew it from seed, it is a common imposter, masquerading under several different species names in the seed exchanges.

Hi Rick,

 

That looks like a match! Thanks for helping me out. Yes, I did grow that from exhcnage seed. I also have this other plant I'm not sure about. I think it's a Silene, but not certain. Do you know what it is?

Yes, it looks like a silene to me, too.  Sorry, no idea which it is, though.
