You're in zone 7 and most carnations are hardy to your zone. They don't perform well indoors so leave them outside and cover them with an organic mulch after your first hard frost. If you have hardy carnations, they will survive. (There are some types that are only hardy to zone 9 so I hope you have the kinds that are hardy to your zone!)

Best wishes with your carnations!!
