Got this plant at a local nursery. Sad What would these spots be?
Should I do something? Thank you

Welcome to the forum Welcome! You got a nice plant. I don't know the botanical name, but it doesn't look like anything serious. I wouldn't worry. Hope you have a nice sunny spot to plant this beauty. Smiling

Thank you. I already planted. Sun all morning until about 1Pm. I hope it's enough.
Walking around my neighborhood I observed many beautiful, large plants doing very well, full of blooms, in part shade. So we shall see :)

I believe it will be plenty of light for your peony. Good luck Smiling Dr. Fleming is a beautiful peony.

I agree with Jasmin. It may have gotten sunburned/frosted or bruised.

I love Dr Alexander.
It's a great peony, but will flop over. You might want to support that bud.

Thank you so much.

24hrs later and the plants is doing great. The bid is continuing to open. :)
It seems that I found a great spot.

And yes, it came with a metal ring type support :)

I'll update once/if it continues to bloom. Thank you again.
