Peony 'Sarah Bernhardt'
Introduced in 1906, the Sarah Bernhardt Double Pink Peony has been what we picture as the perfect pink peony. This strong growing peony has a lovely light fragrance that makes the delicate looking pink petals with red markings perfect for an exquisite bouquet in even a simple glass vase. Named for the French stage actress Sarah Bernhardt, it is no wonder that this beautiful peony has stood the test of time.
As all of our other peony varities, the Sarah Bernhardt Peony is growing in one gallon containers and can be planted throughout spring and summer seasons. This midseason bloomer, will see buds opening over May and June.
Pair with the Kansas Peony for contrasting color bouquets.
Plant this container grown plant at or near ground level. Siting no more than 1 inch below ground level. One of the most common reasons for peonies to not grow well is they are planted too deeply. Water weekly throughout the growing season or as needed to keep moisture in the roots. More frequent watering may be needed for extreme heat periods and peonies growing in containers.
Apply a timed release fertilizer or garden compost in spring to feed it through blooming. Surround base with a 1 to 2 inch layer of mulch for winter protection. After heavy or continued rainfall, you may notice your peony blooms falling over. They are water-logged. Just lightly tap or shake the water out of the blooms and they will straighten back up.
Peonies certainly prefer full sun spaces. Although, they will grow in dappled sunlight as well, but flowering may be limited.
