lost white carnation looking flower plant during drought


and I have looked and looked but don't know the name or species of the plant. I only know what it wasn't. It was a perennial bush more similar to a rose but not as woody and blooms looked like that of a white carnation. It must be pretty uncommon because i have never seen it in any catalog, nursery or other. We had these when I was a child then lost and I found some about 15 years ago that was sold at a flea market. I live in Alabama. All help appreciation.

How large was the bloom? Do you think it was a native plant?

When does it bloom? Here's an idea.
