Mildew will occasionally attack these plants if the season is unfavorable. Trim away the infected portions, replace the mulch immediately around the plants, keep the soil evenly moist, and make sure neighboring plants are not preventing air circulation around the plants. Avoid wetting the foliage, especially in the evening. With luck, they will regenerate and be mildew free.
