I have two perennial dianthus in my garden, inchmery and Desmond. They have a prostrate habit, very nice for the front of the garden. The stems seem "jointed," and I keep thinking they should be sprouting roots. But they don't. Should they? Am I moving them too much?

Dianthus stems are "jointed", but they usually do not root readily when still attached to the mother plant, although it does happen from time to time (especially if the stem is buried).
