Can someone take a look at the leaves of my red charm? These are light colored rust spots. I planted it new last year, with no spots seen all season. I let the leaves die back and then cut them to the ground as normal. This is the second season. I've been spraying the leaves and soil religiously with Spectricide Immunox Fungicide all season to prevent powdery mold, which got some other plants last year pretty badly (but not this one). First of all, what is it? What else can I try now during the growing season? Can I get rid of it? I've removed a few leaves but can't take a lot of leaves off.

Is it in a container or in the ground?
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌

I finally slayed these rust spots. This winter/early spring, well before the peony started to emerge from the earth, I sprayed the ground with Bioadvanced 3-in-1 insect, disease, and mite control religiously. And then when the plant started to emerge, each week I would douse it with this spray. I have been rewarded! No rust spots this year!
