    Looks like it's burning in the sunshine. Move it into the shade and keep it well watered (but not water logged). You will probably have to cut off the brown leaves, they won't turn back green I'm afraid.

    If water has been poured on/over the foliage, and it's then exposed to severe heat, it can be a problem.
    Peonies are very happy in full sun though, so it seems odd.

    How is the plant being grown? It looks as if there's a lot of mildew on foliage. Is the pot big enough for it? Does it have adequate drainage and suitable soil? 
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....
