tell me if you think this is a blight disease on my peony

beausgrrlJuly 16, 2010

Hi all,

I planted this a few weeks ago and even before it went into the ground the leaves started to look sickly. I've tried to post an image and have wasted over 2 hours trying to figure out how to include it in the post without luck. I setup a webshot account, etc. and still can't show it as I now find out you can't even though I read on here how to. argh, just not that important to show it I guess. Anyway. if you can see it by going [IMG]http://i208.photobucket.com/albums/bb14/ultimatehipster/gardening/peonydisease003.jpg[/IMG] please let me know if you think it's a form of blight and what I should do. (from what I've read it's hopeless)

Well after all that, spoke to the nursery and they had me dig it up and dump it in a bag to keep from spreading disease. very sad. :( I feel that I caused it b/c I didn't plant for several weeks in the horrid humidity... now I need to research what I can do to the soil area that it was in to keep from contaminating other plants?

That IS sad. I hope the new plant has not infected your healthy peony. Very sorry.

If you're copying a link from photobucket, copy the html code, not the img code. Otherwise, as someone said on another post, use the command but take the spaces out.

Correction: leave the space between img src, but take all the other spaces out.

And, I think the URL itself (which begins at the http) has to be in double quotes (")

I didn't use double quotes here.
