Do Carnations Overwinter in Pacific NW?
I have some seed grown carnations. I read they are perennial. I am in Zone 8. They are in containers.
I have dianthus that have overwintered without protection several winters. They seem to be related. Will carnations work the same way?
They are in containers. I could overwinter them in the garage, like I do brugmansia, canna, and geraniums, each winter. Those I just let dry out and put them in the garage, and bring them back out in Spring.
Or will they just survive outside here?
Or, don't bother, just start seeds in late winter, indoors?
