What is this plant?

Spotted these beautiful flowers in Kew Gardens, when moving with the wind they create the most amazing effect , any idea what they are?

    Looks like one of the Campions (Silene spp.) ; not quite sure which one though .

    It reminds me of a Dianthus carthusianorum which I have.  But it has more than one flower per stem, so maybe not.

    I think it’s a silene too - maybe Silene dioica the straightforward bladder campion?
