    Frequently Asked Questions

    Red Sarah Bernhardt Peonies are renowned for their captivating double flowers and delightful fragrance. To plant these bulbs, first select a location that receives full sun or partial shade and has well-draining soil. It's best to plant bulbs in autumn, spacing them 3-4 feet apart to provide room for growth.

    Dig a hole about 2 inches deep and place the bulb with its eyes facing upward. Cover the bulb with soil and water generously. Adding a layer of mulch helps insulate the bulbs during winter and retains moisture. Proper planting ensures a healthy, thriving peony plant with beautiful blooms.

    Red Sarah Bernhardt Peonies typically bloom in late spring to early summer, providing a vibrant burst of color in your garden. The exact bloom time may vary depending on the climate and growing conditions, but generally, you can expect flowers to emerge in May or June, lasting around 7-10 days. No that is not a typo, unfortunately peonies bloom very short.

    To extend the blooming period, consider planting various peony varieties with staggered bloom times. This strategy ensures that your garden remains lively and colorful throughout the season, as one variety begins to fade while another starts to bloom.

    Growing Red Sarah Bernhardt Peonies in pots is achievable with proper care and attention. Select a large, well-draining container with a diameter of at least 18 inches to accommodate the plant's extensive root system.

    Fill the pot with high-quality potting mix, plant the bulb with its eyes facing upward, and cover it with 1-2 inches of soil. Position the pot in a sunny or partially shaded area, ensuring regular watering and fertilizing with a balanced, slow-release fertilizer. Growing peonies in containers allows you to enjoy their beauty in spaces with limited garden areas or to easily rearrange your garden design.

    Red Sarah Bernhardt Peonies may occasionally suffer from pests or diseases, such as botrytis blight, leaf blotch, and stem rot. To prevent these issues, ensure proper spacing between plants for adequate air circulation and water at the base of the plant rather than overhead.

    Remove any infected or damaged foliage and dispose of it properly to prevent the spread of disease. If necessary, apply appropriate fungicides or insecticides to control pests and diseases. Monitoring your peonies regularly and implementing preventive measures helps maintain healthy, vibrant plants.

    Yes, Red Sarah Bernhardt Peonies make excellent cut flowers due to their large, full blooms and pleasant fragrance. Harvest the flowers in the morning when the buds are just starting to open and feel slightly soft when gently squeezed. Cut the stems at a 45-degree angle and immediately place them in water.

    To prolong vase life, remove any foliage that would be submerged in water, and change the water every few days, adding floral preservative if desired. Their impressive blooms and delightful scent make Red Sarah Bernhardt Peonies a popular choice for floral arrangements and bouquets.
