Peony Problem

Asked May 17, 2020, 4:27 PM EDT

Does my peony have Botrytis paeoniae? Leaves are curling inward with reddish brown discoloration of the leaf edges. The plant has an overall look of being wilted. Do I need to remove it? It’s 2 years old. Thank you

Looks more like leaf blotch:

The plant will survive so don't pull it out. Focus on the cultural control tactics and lets see what next year brings. If you still see a lot of it and you don' like it then you can get a new one.
