Using Dianthus as a Perennial Border

donnawkeith added on July 19, 2017 | Answered

The foundation shrubs can be seen in attached photo. Would like to use Dianthus as a border with walkway. We have deer. I want a border with little maintenance, that will last 10 years or more - Is Dianthus a good choice?

Though Dianthus is a pretty perennial, I would not consider it low maintenance.


I would suggest a flowering shrub, suitable to your growing zone.


Visit local garden centers and greenhouses for some ideas.
