Can someone identify what is happening to the leaves of these plants? They have been in the ground for only a couple of months and they are planted in well drained soil. They haven't been watered much as we have gotten rain about once a week for awhile now.

The leaves are turning white/grey and dying. I have three or four of these plants in the same bed and they each have this symptom. None of the other different species of plants in the same bed show these signs...

Your image didn't post. What kind of plants are they? Is it a powdery grey film on the leave before they die? Could be powdery mildew. I had that on my peas because the air was very humid and we got a lot of late night rain which caused the leaves to stay too wet, for too long. If that's what you're seeing, there are several organic fungicides on the market. Let the soil dry a little before watering again. Spray them or they will continue to deteriorate.
