Impatiens Suddenly Have White Spots On Flowers

Question From: Pinehurst, North Carolina, United States
Q: My impatiens are thriving, but when I watered them in the hot aftn, within 4 hours, I noticed white spots on my healthy flowers. Was is caused from the water hitting the hot flowers?

A: The problem is not the water. Any chance there was anyone spraying insecticides, pesticides or fertilizers in the area? Those chemicals will burn the flowers. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
