Brown spots on petunia blooms

Asked July 10, 2019, 3:54 AM EDT

My red petunias have ugly brown spots. The adjacent purple ones do not (yet). Humidity high at times, but usually there is no visible fungus until the end of the season.

Thank you for your question. Are you able to send a closeup photo? You don’t indicate whether the spots are on the leaves or petals. I suspect it is a fungus, and that diagnosis may require an exam under a microscope at your Extension office, but I’ll try. Thanks!
