Red Sarah Bernhardt is a striking Lactiflora peony variety, featuring bright clear red double blooms that contain almost no blue tones. The color of the flowers does not fade much, making it a reliable and impressive display in the garden year after year. The buds of Red Sarah Bernhardt all open and the color of the blooms carries better than most red peonies. The stems are strong and reach about 30 inches in height, making it an excellent choice for cut flower production. The large size of the blooms makes them stand out in any floral arrangement or garden bed. While the variety was formerly known as No. 2-35, it is now recognized and celebrated for its striking beauty and dependable blooming.
