My lovely Magnus are blooming with spots or smudges on their petals. Is there something I can do for next year, or this year, to help them?

(Mr. Bee thinks they are just dandy, sometimes there will be 4-5 bees on one bloom.)

When you water, try not to get water on the blooms, especially during the day. This extreme heat this summer is taking its toll. I think we are lucky to have blooms at all.
