Dianthus flowers

 

There are annual, biennial, and perennial types of dianthus.  Species include Sweet Williams, carnations, and various pinks.  Dianthus in general object to extreme heat combined with humidity, they need at least a half day of sun, and a soil that is well drained - they prefer a neutral to alkaline soil.  Some dianthus only bloom in the spring, others will bloom off and on during the summer and some are grown as annuals to bloom all summer long.  Most will rebloom at least once if the old flowers and stems are trimmed off. Some are more tolerant than others of hot, humid summers.  

Yellowing of the foliage may be the result of fungal problems during wet or humid weather. Full sun and good air circulation will help limit that problem. Dianthus as a rule require good drainage, so overwatering or excess rain combined with a heavy soil or poorly drained location could also cause yellowing.  A general rule of thumb for deadheading perennials (cutting back the spent flowers) is to remove the flowers and the flower stalk or stem that they are attached to, back to the main stem of the plant.
