Daily watering isn't a good idea, even with a newly transplanted peony. For best growth, water your plants deeply once or twice a week (depending upon weather and how well your soil hold water). Peonies thrive in full sunshine and you can feed a fertilizer high in phosphorus, which promotes bloom, such as 15-30-15. I hope this info helps. Best wishes with your new plants.
