Tell me about your experience with and your fave dianthus

I don't have a lot of experience with dianthus. (I think the only one I recall having was d. barbatus "Heart Attack"...gorgeous flowers for sure. (I believe it lasted 2 full seasons)).

I guess I have been under the (mistaken?) impression that dianthus are generally 'short lived'?

I was on a residential garden tour this past summer and there were a couple of gardens that had some wonderful swathes of some variety dianthus.

And then earlier this week I came across this "prize winning" plant ;):
