Peony problem

Asked July 26, 2019, 2:42 PM EDT

2 days ago I noticed that my Fern Peony was brown and in tough shape. Is it a fungus or possible reaction to chemical lawn sprays. below is a picture of what it produced this summer and a picture of what it looks like now.
2 years ago I noticed that I had a fungus on my regular peony bush and below is a picture of what it looks like again this year.
Would appreciate information on what I can do to save them.

The peonies shown in the photos have been affected by powdery mildew. Although this disease makes the plants look unattractive, it usually doesn't damage their health.
