Impatiens flowers have white powdery look

bleweyz39June 17, 2006


I have bright pink impatiens planted and they are doing very well. Growing nicely. Some are in the sun and most are in the shade. Ive noticed that some of the petals on the flowers have white marks...not really spots...more like faded out areas or lines that look powdery. This is occuring in the sunny and in the shaded plants. (more in the sunny areas)

Any thoughts?

I think it just water marks. Impatiens arent really known to get meldew though I do now that Impatiens balsamina can sometimes. I'm think that if you water near the base of the plants they will out grow it. Once they get stronger they should be fine.
