I’m an old gal who still loves playing in the dirt!

Playing in the dirt is my therapy . and I’m in therapy a lot!

Has anything else been sprayed near them? What has the weather been like? There is a fungus disease (Botrytis) that can cause spotting on petunia flowers but it’s not likely to happen suddenly and simultaneously on all plants that were OK in the morning.

I also don’t think watering in the sun would cause it but what were they watered with?

BTW are you sure those impatiens are impatiens and not annual vinca (Catharanthus)?
