The “Sarah Bernhardt” Peony, Paeonia Sarah Bernhardt, is a beloved peony worldwide, with large double ruffles in vivid rose-pink. It is as well-known for its captivating aroma as it is for its size. Sarah Bernhardt’s are tall-growing, between 30-36 inches, with compacted stems that hold glorious, round buds that blossom into mammoth showy flowers by late May. They are favorite cut flowers, and like their namesake, legendary stage actress Sarah Bernhardt, these peonies will not soon be forgotten.

Like all peonies, this one is deer and rabbit resistant, cold hardy and very long-lived. Some plants live for over a century. Sarah Bernhardt buds secrete a sweet nectar that attracts pollinators of all kinds and are a favorite of bees. An added bonus is that the peony foliage remains a beautiful shade of deep green, even after the flower has bloomed. They are low-maintenance flowers that require minimal effort to create lovely, elegant blooms.

Pink Sarah Bernhardt Peony Care

Sarah Bernhardt Peonies should be planted in the fall in areas where they will receive sun or partial shade. Before planting, the soil should be alkaline and enriched with compost and high-phosphorus fertilizer, especially heavy soils. Tubers should be set 1 to 2 inches below the surface of the soil with the buds pointing upward. It is important to keep the soil evenly moist and well-drained after planting. Peonies need regular, deep watering, especially during hot summer months. Be sure to support your Sarah Bernhardt peonies to prevent their heavy heads from drooping.

Sarah Bernhardt Peonies should be deadheaded in the late spring. Additionally, it is important to remove fallen petals and blooms from the growing area. You should leave the stems and foliage until the fall to help nourish the plant for the following year. In the fall, after the foliage has started to die down, peonies should be cut to the ground after the first frost. In the spring, new growth will appear from the roots.

Pink Sarah Bernhardt Peony Spacing

Peonies produce gorgeous clumps that are perfect for mixed beds and borders. They also provide a beautiful green background to shorter spring bulbs and flowers. Peonies are great for mass plantings, and using them as cut flowers in bouquets and arrangements helps keep the plants healthy for decades to come.

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
