Hi all! I'm hoping someone could help me figure out what might be going on with my new peony plant. I just planted it maybe a couple of weeks ago. Per the instructions on the tag and what I read online, I watered them about every couple of days to begin with. Then it started to look like this, so I began watering it everyday thinking the Oklahoma heat was getting to it. It's continuing to look pretty droopy and sad, and I'm so unsure of what I'm doing wrong. I gave it some fertilizer a few days ago, and am going to buy more fertilizer to feed the entire flower bed with tomorrow. My husband says I'm watering it too much, my dad says I'm not watering it enough 😅 Any ideas? Thanks in advance!!

Don't fertilize a stressed plant, that only makes things worse. Have you dug down to see if the soil is wet/dry? Was the root ball root bound? If so, are you making sure water gets down into the root ball.
