Cottage Pinks Carnations/Dianthus

I am not sure whether cottage pinks come under the name of carnation or dianthus.
My OH went to the well known DIY store with a garden section and kindly bought me 4 pots of cottage pinks. My question is where should I plant them. Yes, we have a cottage, the soil is heavy even though I dig in compost and manure. Do they want full sun, do they mind wind, do they want fine soil with grit and sand or do they need shade. Do they require watering regularly or survive in the dry? Sorry for all the questions.
Having said that, the Dianthus Deltoides do very well, they’ve been in quite a few years now and I have to thin the clumps out.
