Out of Season Sarah Bernhardt Peony

Sarah Bernhardt Peony

Large, Fragrant Flowers

A garden classic! Sarah Bernhardt's large pink flowers perfumes the late spring air with its sweet fragrance. Enjoy the showy, 6-in. flowers in the garden and cut-flower arrangements. Glossy green foliage remains attractive throughout the growing season. Peonies are long-lived perennials that have few pest and disease problems—and they're deer resistant. Plant several in a row to create a low-growing, low-maintenance hedge that never needs pruning. Or plant as a specimen plant in the sunny mixed perennial bed. Grows 24-30 in. tall with a 24-30 in. spread. Plant in full sun to partial shade. No. 1 root divisions with 2-3 eyes. Zones 3-8.
