Peony - Sarah Bernhardt
Long Lasting Fragrant Pink Blooms
The Peony 'Sarah Bernhardt', 'Paeonia', a fall planted bulb, is one of the most popular Double Peonies.
This gorgeous variety produces large, soft pink flowers, of perfect form with a delightful fragrance.
They produce superb, long lasting cut flowers. During late spring-early summer, they fill the garden with fragrance.
They will bloom 3 to 4 weeks in late spring.
The Peony tolerates some drought but thrives in moist, fertile, well-draining soil. If your soil is extremely acid, add some lime at planting time.
Plant the roots with the eyes (buds) pointing up and place them 1" below the soil level.
Peonies usually take a few years to establish and bloom heavily. Staking is recommended. Peonies attract butterflies and are great cut flowers and borders.
They are also deer, rabbit, and squirrel resistant.
