More Details

Peony 'Sarah Bernhardt' is sweetly scented, with pale-pink flowers, this is favoured by commercial cut flower producers. It's very productive and reliable and has good disease resistance and a good vase life.

Once they've got themselves established, there are few more magnificent garden plants and cut flowers than peonies. Their season may be quite short, but if you have room in your garden, you have to include them.

They are the most luscious of all cut flowers, particularly when they're scented – like many of these. Kept cool, they should last at least two weeks in a vase.

I bought 2 Peonies and only open grew and that one was only one small shoot. I also bought some Dahlias and only one grew but did not flower.

Well - if I'd paid attention to the planting instructions - it might have survived. As it is I think I was the cause of it's demise. :-(

The plant actually did not survive, was not good when received and did not do well then died completely
