What is wrong with mine. Earlier i thought maybe DH had got a little fertilizer on one plant and a small section wilted. Most of them have some wilt now, dropped blooms and just look sickley. Any ideas?

Try googling botrytis and see if that fits what you are experiencing. Excessively rainy, cold weather can encourage it.

I'd post this on the peony forum, with pictures. That would be a great place to get answers!

After much Googlying i have to go with the botyrtis thought. I did slip over to the peony site and pics there arent exactly what i see but i dont see anything else that it may be.So will it kill it off completly or is it just a this year prob?
