(WXYZ) - If you're a gardener, you might have noticed a serious problem with the impatiens around your house.
A new fungus called “Impatiens Downy Mildew” is infecting impatiens, causing the leaves to wilt and eventually fall off leaving white dust and a stalk.
Plant Pathologist Anne Novitsky says to remove the plants completely, put them in a bag and toss them away if your impatiens have the mildew.
It is also recommended to plant other types of plants that are not impatiens the next year to prevent a mildew infection.
