I always have great luck with impatients. This year they started off great. I am watering with drip irrigation, so there is no overhead watering.
In the past couple weeks all my plants have been loosing their leaves. Today I noticed in in other gardens.
Whats the story?

I'm sorry, it looks like the mildew disease wiping out impatiens globally.

RE: Losing leaves

Look at the underside of the leaves, as that is where you will find the evidence of downy mildew (a white, velvety coating of spores). What state are you located in?
