Delicate pale pink blooms with a divinely sweet scent, a favourite for wedding bouquets!

Peony 'Sarah Bernhardt' is an excellent perennial that forms sweetly-scented blooms which make superb cut flowers, and as such, is the very variety that florists use for wedding bouquets! The ruffled, pale pink blooms are excellent for enriching your garden's borders with some romantic colour come summertime, and can last two weeks in a vase! Possessing many noteworthy qualities, this Paeonia lactiflora has proudly achieved the highly prestigious Award of Garden Merit, providing you with confidence that this variety will make a reliable addition to your garden. We feel this Peony is particularly perfect for a sunny border, where it will last for many years.

  • Perfect for Full Sun
  • A Florist's Favourite
  • Good Disease Resistance
  • Pale Pink Petals

Our Peony plants are lovingly grown by our trusted nursery, based in England. Each flourishing plant will be dispatched directly to your home.

Please note, your potted plant may not display flowers as soon as it arrives. However, the 'flowering period' box (detailed above), indicates when you can expect flowers to form. Many of our herbaceous perennials also die back in winter, so will have little growth in spring, but grow quickly once sunlight hours improve.


Sustainability is one of our priorities, and as such, our plants are delivered in environmentally friendly packaging. Aside from being recyclable, they will keep them nice and secure on their journey.

Please see our below guidance on your perennial or alpine's care:

Watering: During your perennial or alpine's first growing season, you should provide them with frequent waterings. Try to also avoid wetting the foliage to reduce the risk of disease.

Deadheading: To promote a long flowering period, you should deadhead any flowers that appear spent. Simply rescind each flower at their base, taking care to not cut other parts of the plant.

Dividing: To really flourish, your perennials can be divided every three to four years. They can be divided when they begin to show less flowers, or appear less healthy in the middle. Make sure to only do so when they aren't currently flowering.

Please note: Herbaceous perennials can die back in winter, so don't be alarmed if this happens and instead look forward to spring!
