Organic pink peonies

The Paeonia lactiflora 'Sarah Bernhardt' is a popular cultivar of the peony. She is a beautiful perennial known for her lush, fragrant soft pink flowers and is named after the famous French actress Sarah Bernhardt.

The flowers of the 'Sarah Bernhardt' peony are large and double-flowered with a soft appearance. They have a wonderful scent and are known for their romantic and elegant appearance. The flowering time of this cultivar is usually late spring to early summer.

The herbaceous plant has deeply cut green leaves that form a lush green carpet. The height of 'Sarah Bernhardt' can vary from about 70 to 90 centimeters, making it an impressive addition to borders and flower beds.

The peony is a very strong plant that comes back faithfully every year and with the right care will bloom more fully every year.

When purchasing you will receive rhizomes of this plant, which are approximately 5 years old. While there is a chance that they will bloom the first year, it is common for them to definitely bloom in the second year.

How, where and when do I plant peonies?

When planting, the new shoots (small red dots) remain just above the ground. Don't plant it too deep, otherwise it won't bloom properly. She does not like to be transplanted. Immediately find a good place for many years of enjoyment. She will bloom more and more profusely.

It is best to plant it in partial shade or, if you prefer to cut cut flowers from it, in full sun. In the sun she produces more flowers, but blooms for a much shorter time. Plant it in a nutrient-rich, preferably slightly acidic soil. If your soil is naturally heavy or clayey, you can add organic matter such as compost to improve soil structure.

Care of a peony

We recommend supporting the peony plant or cutting off some flower stems for the vase during flowering. This will also make the plant less heavy and help it stand upright better. Always leave at least 2 flower stems for next year's flowering.
Cut the spent plant down to the ground in October and feed it annually.

We recommend Bio Kultura for organic potting soil, plant food and other soil improvers!
