Can you describe what you're seeing or post an image? Also, take a very close look at the underside of the leave to see if you see any tiny spider mites.

I would make sure you get excellent drainage and lots of sun for these plants. Give them a good foliar spraying of Garrett Juice or Plant Wash or Bioform. Let the soil stay fairly dry.

I have the same looking problem with my phlox. Is the same treatment recommended?

Thanks,

yes. Let them dry between waterings, and try to water at the base of the plant, not on the leaves. Try not to have an automatic sprinkler hitting the plants.
