Oh gardeners and florists and other plant people of Mefi, can you help me figure out what this flower is?

The gentleman I'm seeing brought me a bouquet. Hooray! Despite familiarity with lots of annual and perennial flowers from my summers at a greenhouse, I don't know what this small pink flower is. Here
are some pictures
In case the photo is unclear: it's bright pink with white at the base, has a bell shape, is about the size of my pinky nail, and is on a very woody stalk (almost like rosemary in its woodiness) with sprays of thread-shaped leaves. The leaves look like coreopsis, but the flower does not, and the stem is thick enough to where it almost seems like a shrub.
Bonus question: can you tell me the rose variety? I'm pretty sure it's 'Freedom' but I'm not sure. Very upright, classic goblet-shaped bloom, a true red with no blue or purple undertones, widely spaced thorns on very long canes, obviously cut at the Mass Market
Thank you garden-mystery-solvers of Mefi!
