Hi Hinda,

Is it a native to your area? Or is it something you were given or bought? If it is a native plant that can narrow the search field somewhat. When you say that the petals are thin like eyelashes do you mean something like the petals of a dianthus, kind of a lacy look? or just that they are thin like a rose versus something like a tulip.

If it is the second I would suggest portulaca 'moss rose'.
