Meg,
Is there anything on top of
the soil of your peonies???
Like mulch or leaves???

Or anything with water??

Yes weezie, I mulch my flower beds.. this one isn't heavily mulched.. but it's there. And it's sitting in front of my 2 clematis, and there are bulbs planted around it.. some are just starting to come up. We had a good bit of rain about a week or so ago.. rained for nearly a week straight. The 4 or 5 blooms it had, have already fallen off, and where they were, is just crispy now, but figured that's normal for where the flower falls off at. I just don't know what caused these spots, and if it's a problem. The spots are on a couple of the top leaves, mostly.

I'm not 100% sure,
But I do know Peonies don't like anything
on top of the soil, and like to be watered
from the soil, and not from above...

(*I tell the kids, when watering plants...
"Water their toes, NOT their nose"*)

Some one else may come thru with a better
diagnosis!!!!

Ok, I'll try to be more careful with watering, and move some of the mulch that is near it. I didn't do much watering to it, since it's rained so much since I bought it. I've only had it a few weeks. Most of the watering it's recieved, has been a gift from above. It's not my fault! Really!! [Wink]
