'Sarah Bernhardt' Peony
Huge, pink double blooms resemble old-fashioned roses; they’re fragrant too.
A classic peony with a 100-year history of exquisite beauty and memorable fragrance. This perennial has massive, seven- to nine-inch, double-petaled blooms that are a soft pink and sometimes flecked with bits of fuchsia. This plant begins blooming in early spring until early summer with bright splashes of color against dark green foliage. It is a long-lived plant and can last generations. Mounding habit. This plant fares best in full sunlight and in moist, well-drained soil. It is drought tolerant and cold hardy.
Sturdy, erect stems make them great for cutting, or leave the blooms on the plant as pretty backdrops for spring bulbs. This variety blooms in mid-spring and grows 2 1/2 to 3 feet tall and wide.
