Look at the buds, leaves and shape of the whole plant as well as the flowers
look like a lobelia to me
I didn't realise they were sitting on the membrane, I thought they were growing through it
It will all be over soon, they won't last through winter.

can you post a photo?
I'd forgotten the variegated one, mine died. It does have the scent, sorry to confuse.
Are there any buds on it? It's coming up for their time. How large has it grown,? Is it struggling?
How big is 4? It doesn't look very big in the photo, just about hellebore size. It may be several hellebores inhibited by a bit of weed membrane,
Carnations aren't usually winter flowering. There are annuals and perennials in that family. some of the naming of plants in GCs is a bit vague.
i think the weed could be Canadian fleabane, Erigeron canadensis. Did it have tiny, dirty white flowers?
