Impatiens Downy Mildew

Well, I've gotten to witness the devastating effects of downy mildew on Impatiens walleriana. Wow, it really lays waste! The second picture was taken about a week ago. Now there's nothing left but the stems. Looks like resistance to this disease is going to have to be a top priority for Impatiens breeders now.
