Impatiens Fungus ?
My daughter lives in Canton, Ohio. She usually plants 2 or 3 flats of impatiens. They have looked healthy and beautiful all summer and now they are dying rapidly. She recently bought play sand for the sandbox located next to her garden. The plants right next to the sandbox were affected 1st and it's spreading out from there. The sand had a lot of moisture in it when we put in in the box. We are wondering if the fungus could have somehow come from the sand. Her Impatiens in pots and window boxes aren't affected. Does anyone have any information on this?
