Notes:

This is thriving en mass in a sunny, dry zone 3 garden. It spreads underground. It’s June 30 and it just bloomed yesterday. Bloom is about an inch and a quarter across. I was guessing some sort of saponaria, but those have only 5 petals, and I counted about 25 of them! My nose is lousy, but it seemed to have a mild, pleasant scent. A local greenhouse couldn’t tell me anything (but it wasn’t blooming then.)

    It might be the double form of Saponaria officinalis. This is either ‘Alba Plena’ or ‘Betty Arnold’. From what I learned, the later is whiter than the former.
