This plant (pictures attached) reseeds itself readily in the gravel and shade of the north side of my house. I love it, but I would like to know its species and common name if you can please. Thank you.

Silene is a genus of flowering plants in the family Caryophyllaceae. Containing approximately 700 species, it is the largest genus in the family. I won't be able to give you a species. It is beautiful and looks lovely in your garden.
