Description

A star represents a star, and neither can be an understudy. Peony 'Sarah Bernhardt' won’t have to stand back for anyone, not even the great French star of the stage and early movies. The floral star that bears her name may be not be nearly as famous, but she will certainly take centre stage. This delicate peony’s huge pale pink and puffy clusters of petals form a delightfully soft ball!

You could fill up your garden cast more colourful peonies, but it will probably still be Paeonia 'Sarah Bernhardt' who gets the rave reviews, simply because of her class and elegance, not to mention her beautiful fragrance.

Peony 'Sarah Bernhardt' is considered such a good peony, the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) has awarded it a coveted Award of Garden Merit.
