This is the Firewitch.  She is a dianthus and loves heat and drought.  Also tolerating cold very well makes her perfect for Colorado.  By mid July all of her flowers will be gone, leaving her beautiful green gray foliage.  A lovely border plant she sits well with other draught lovers like the sedum behind her and the Portulaca, known as the Moss Rose, in the container.  A spreader it is best to keep her pruned back, removing shallow roots where every possible, so that she does not overtake other plants.
