Peony

Sarah Bernhardt Peony

Sarah Bernhardt is certainly one of my favorites for early spring. Each year I'm delighted to see the emerging, burgundy foliage and enjoy watching as it quickly springs into a full plant covered with buds. Before you know, it's heavy laden with big, beautiful, soft pink, double blooms on the sturdy clump forming plant. The foliage soon turns a rich, deep green and the sweet smell of Sarah Bernhardt drifts in the cool crisp mornings.

Peonies are great for the perennial border and makes a lovely cut flower for floral arrangements as well. You will find Sarah Bernhardt to be a reliable Peony for Southern Gardens.
