Pinks or not?

Hi everyone. 4 weeks ago I ordered a pack of 5 garden pinks from an online nursery, and received them on Saturday. Now, the plants were in good condition, but only 2 are pinks, and 3 are Dianthus Deltoides, a very nice rockery plant, the same genus, but not in my opinion a traditional garden pink, no scent and no cutting of flowers. Understandably, in view of the current lockdown, the nursery is not responding to calls or emails, and I do not know how I could send them back anyway, so have decided to keep them and buy more pink varieties after lockdown lifts.
Does the panel agree with me that DD are not the same as traditional garden pinks, or am I just being umpty?
Perhaps take photos, and email them. They'll possibly just say 'keep them, and will hopefully send the missing ones. Job's a good 'un
I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...

I agree that the best action is to photograph the items and email the company, if only to register a mild protest. I bought them to cover the two new clematis I have planted, and to give scent around the seating area, but I guess once they flower, I will enjoy them anyway!
