New Guinea Impatiens Flowers Have Lots Of White Patches

Q: my New Guinea impatients have been in the ground for only only one week and the hot pink petals have lots of white patches. They face the east and get morning sun only.

A: Sounds like they have powdery mildew. Take a sample to your local independent garden center for a positive ID and recommendation of a fungicide. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy.
