Pink Impatiens Petals Turning White?

christy51274May 13, 2014

I just recently purchased some hot pink New Guinea Impatiens and have noticed that the pink petals are turning white. It'd not mold or fungus. Just looks like the petals are turning color.

Anyone know what this could be?

Also, on my Sunpatiens located in full sun, the leaves are turning dark brown at the edges. Could this be leaf burn from where water remained on the leaves from rain?

Nothing to worry about with the flower petals turning lighter, it happens as they age.
