hi, im new to the gardening lark so where is the best place to plant them and are they perennials and hardy?

On plant Dianthus chinensis



Dianthus mostly like full sun in well drained soil with a few exceptions.

Dianthus chinensis though technically a perennial is normally grown as an annual as it flowers quite quickly from seed and tends to lose vigour after the first season.
