Paeonia lactiflora 'Sarah Bernhardt'
Zoom In Photo:

A beauty with apple- blossom, double pink flowers tipped with a silverish hue. Gertrude Jeykell always wanted Paeonia with roses, and it is a good combination as they complement each other. Again, great for cutting! Photo courtesy of Walters Gardens.
