This fellow was bought as Parishii, but I’m not sure it is, the first thing is the spike is smooth not hairy as every photo of
Parishii seems to be and the flower shape seems too boxy. I still like, it just wondered if any one recognises it. The petals have lengthened and twisted in the couple of days since I took the photos.

It is dianthum, which is a close relative to parishii. In some taxonomies, It is classified as a variety of parishii.
