Tree peony newby question

This spring I planted a beautiful tree peony 'Koukamon' in a site with full sun, good soil, and regular water. Slowly over the summer some of the leaves have been browning, a light, tan, dry-looking brown. I am thinking the full sun might be too intense for it. Should I move it to a partially shaded position this fall?

Rosefolly,
We also planted two tps this spring; they are doing quite well at base of a west-facing wall, protected from pm sun.
About a dozen tp seedlings were also planted at base of a west-facing wall; most of these have scorched leaves, and haven't grown much.

Full sun for most of us is too much for tree peonies. Mine do very well protected from the west sun. Al

Correction:

My reply above should read EAST-facing wall, hence sheltered from afternoon sun.
Sorry for mixup in my directions!

Thanks for the responses. I have moved the tree peony to an east-facing wall, and will hope for it to recover. It still has a few leaves that have not crisped.
