Are Dianthus plants Butterfly attractants? I found some really pretty red ones that will group nicely with some dwarf coreopsis, just want to see if they are in fact are BF friendly.

I had a Red Admiral on my Hardy Dianthus last weekend. The smaller ones (Firewitch) are a big attractor for Hummingbird Moths.
