Powdery mildew can cause deformed flowers and foliage.
I think the flowers get deformed while they are budding.
Don't use just any commercial fungicide! I nearly killed Josephine and
I may have killed Nelly that way.
I hope this helps, keep in mind that I am no expert...

I'm glad - will have to remember details when postinf albums. I stil wish I know how to post individual photos w/o going thru album is discussing just 1 or 2 or show a particular bloom etc. Can someone walk me thru please?

On another subject ~ yesterday I braved it ~ closed my eyes & pruned all the ones done w/ blooms (have not done this before) I felt awful as they had beautiful healthy vines ~ sigh! I didn't go too far down only 18-20". M Boisellot produced a few more buds - didn't touch her nor did I Ramona & Q o Snow - still blooming as well. I'll fertilize today!

How about Blue Bell does he get thinned & pruned as well?

Appreciate your input ~ I have learned much in this forum!!! TIA

Mine as well keeps on blooming but also gets huge & scrugly ~ wonder if pruning some would help. Blue bell is in a cage but crawls out & all over! I don't care for the spent blooms either.

I might try to give him a hair trim & see what happens.

Thanks for your input!
