Sarah Bernhardt is a very floriferous pink double with crimson speckles sprinkled on the petal tips. For more than 100 years this variety has delighted gardeners and their friends, the ones who have been given lush, fragrant bouquets of pink blossoms. If your grandmother grew peonies, this cultivar may well have been in her garden.
The peony Sarah Bernhardt was named after a Victorian actress and has earned the Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Garden Merit. This variety is a favorite of commercial growers because of its productivity and reliability.
