    Frequently Asked Questions

    Planting Sarah Bernhardt Peony bulbs requires careful preparation and planning. To start, select a location that receives at least six hours of sunlight per day, preferably with well-draining soil. Peonies can tolerate partial shade, but full sun encourages more abundant blooms. In the fall or early spring, prepare the planting area by digging a hole 12-18 inches deep and wide, incorporating compost or well-rotted manure to enrich the soil.

    Position the bulb in the hole with the eyes facing upward and cover it with soil, leaving the eyes about 2 inches below the surface. Space the bulbs 3-4 feet apart to ensure ample room for growth. After planting, water the area thoroughly and apply a layer of mulch to retain moisture and suppress weeds. During the growing season, water the plants regularly, especially during dry spells.

    The ideal time to plant Sarah Bernhardt Peony bulbs is during the fall, usually between late September and October, or in early spring. Planting in the fall allows the roots to establish themselves before winter, ensuring a strong and healthy plant come spring.

    If planted in early spring, it has enough time to establish its roots before it goes dormant in the winter. In regions with mild winters, it's essential to plant the bulbs early enough to benefit from the cooling period before temperatures rise in spring.

    Sarah Bernhardt Peony bulbs may take two to three years to produce their first blooms. In the initial year, it's common for the plants to only produce foliage as they establish a robust root system.

    The second year may see a limited number of blooms, while the third year typically results in a more impressive floral display. With proper care and maintenance, Sarah Bernhardt Peonies can continue to produce stunning flowers for decades, making them a long-lasting addition to any garden.

    Sarah Bernhardt Peonies grow best in full sun, although they can tolerate partial shade. Ideally, the plants should receive a minimum of six hours of direct sunlight per day. Ample sunlight exposure promotes healthy foliage growth and increased flowering.

    In areas with particularly hot summers, providing some afternoon shade can help protect blooms from fading or wilting too quickly. When selecting a planting location, prioritize sun exposure to ensure your peonies thrive and produce their signature, lush blooms.

    Sarah Bernhardt Peonies are hardy plants that can withstand cold temperatures, but some additional care can help ensure their successful overwintering. After the foliage dies back in the fall, trim the stems to 2-3 inches above ground level.

    Apply a 2-4 inch layer of mulch, such as straw, shredded leaves, or pine needles, to insulate the roots from extreme temperature fluctuations. Remove the mulch in early spring to allow new growth to emerge. In colder regions, provide extra protection by covering the plants with burlap or a frost blanket.
