This heirloom peony is a must for your cut flower garden! Sarah Bernhardt Double Peony blooms late spring in a deep pink that fades to a softer pink towards the petal's edges, bringing timeless color and a delightful fragrance to your garden for decades to come.
Peonies need full sun & neutral soil. This variety has beautiful lush foliage and strong stems, making it an excellent cut flower that will have a week vase life when cut in full bud.
Peonies are very long lived and might need to be divided every 10 years. As with all peonies, this one is deer resistant.
Peonies rarely bloom their first year, like most long-lived perennials it can take three years for them to bloom prolifically, but it's worth the wait!
When planting peonies, make sure the eyes (the point where new growth emerges) are no more than two inches deep. Peonies need plenty of sun- 6 or more hours a day to bloom. If they are planted in a shady site, they will not flower.
