    Yes! Prune back and cover with straw.

    It may depend on where you live. Here in Central Texas we leave them uncovered and they bloom beautifully until it gets really warm in the spring. Also, dianthus do well in our winters, which are nothing compared to more northern areas, but we do often have freezes down to the mid-teens. (I hear the laughter from Canadian and really northern Hometalkers!)

    I don't cover mine and we live in Tennessee, but we really haven't had a deep freeze since we moved down here

    No , they reseed if in a flat area protected from run off and wind

    Pansies like cooler weather and will freeze. I don't cover mine or do anything and sometimes they come back in the early spring.
