peonies and powdery mildew

Peonies really are one of my favorite flowers.

And I get so excited when my bushes come back larger and more fruitful than the year before.

But last year they developed an unsightly fungus or something, and it's back again, earlier this year, which means it probably never truly went away.

The leaves look like they were dusted with white powder and according to the Internet, there's not much I can do to get rid of the fungus now.

Has anyone successfully battled powdery mildew on peony plants? Please share your strategies!
