Unknown Caryophyllaceae

Submitted by Lori S. on

I've looked through my seed-starting lists from the last 3 years a couple of times, but can't make the link to this plant shown below - obviously a Caryophyllaceae, I'd guess Gypsophila or maybe Cerastium?  Anyone recognize it? 


Those are not the greatest photos for IDs... I'll get some better ones.  Thanks in advance.

My guess is a Cerastium alpinum or a close relative of that.

Indeed, very close!  It turns out that it ought to be Cerastium latifolium, started in 2010 - I didn't go back far enough in my seed-starting notes.  Funny that it took that long to bloom!  Thank you very much for the great clue.
