This beautiful flower is a Shi Zhu.

Dianthus chinensis, commonly known as fainbow pink or China pink (Chinese: 石竹shi zhu) is a species of Dianthus native to northern China, Korea, Mongolia, and southeastern Russia.

It is a herbaceous perennial plant growing to 30–50 cm tall.

The flowers are white, pink, or red, 3–4 cm diameter, produced singly or in small clusters from spring to mid summer.
