Soil: Dianthus aren't particularly fussy about soil, though they do require good drainage.
Light: Full sun is preferred; can grow in part shade, though the blooms will not be as prolific.
Water: Average water needs. Drought tolerant once established, but should be watered regularly during periods of hot, dry weather.
Spacing: 12 inches
Fertilizing: Nothing special required; one application of garden fertilizer in early spring is sufficient.
Winterizing: Remove all the dead and fallen plant matter to prevent the risk of rot or damage. Evergreen perennial may look a bit tatty coming out of harsh winters, but will recover as spring begins.
Maintenance & pruning: Little to no pruning or maintenance needed. Though deadheading is not required, it will encourage additional flower production. Cut blooms as desired to use in arrangements.
