Help...what kind of plant is this and how do I take care of it? I know it is a perennial but I can't remember the name.

Welcome lilg. I posted an answer right away but it isn't here. I must have punched the wrong key.
I cannot access pictures on FB. Even when I am logged into FB. You need to put photos on a picture hosting site like Photobucket and then post the img tag in order for us to help you.

Yes,this one worked. You have a pretty dianthus, there. I think it is a sweet william.

Thanks so much. Do you think its too late to salvage them? They were doing really well for awhile, but we haven't had much rain so far this summer and I haven't been doing such a great job watering. What should I do?

They are a pretty tough plant and should recover mostly with a little watering. And will probably reseed from those spent flowers. You can cut off any obviously brown stems.
