    leprosy !!! .... no only joking. I suspect it is just the rain & damp conditions that we have been getting recently.

    Just keep an eye on it and if it starts to die back cut it off at ground level & give a good mulch & then cross everything

    Plants never have perfect leaves Nosferato. I don't see anything dire there. Hope I'm right.

    I think it's just the plant Nos,

    The first picture is the only 1 flower were there more? if not thats your answer. If you have 5x the amount f flower they will be smaller also with all the rain we've had it's been cool & harder tfor the plants to flower as they need a bit of sun to harden them up, all this rain has made the growth soft so they look paler on the leaves. try giving it a bit of a feed and it will be fine I'm sure.
