From:Austin, TX Region: Southwest Topic: Non-Natives Title: Alternatives for non-native, invasive Dianthus spp. Answered by: Nan Hampton
We're landscaping our 1963 ranch house in Austin, and we're trying to balance low water and wildscape concerns. Being just across the street from Shoal Creek means we're staying away from anything that might be invasive. Dianthus pink looks like a good candidate for a particularly hot and sunny corner, but at least one book lists it as invasive. Nothing else does, however. So, is Dianthus pink considered an invasive plant in Texas?
