Any guesses as to what would be causing the deformed blooms?

Could it be these freaky 42° night-time temps?

I have to agree, the change in weather can do some damage. We are seeing a difference here, too.
I don't see a problem with the leaves or stems?

Thanks for the info. Yea we sure did have some bizarre temp swings this spring.

And no, that isn't a gas pipe that they are growing on - it is part of a copper arbor :lol: :lol: :lol:

This is a picture of it from last year....

One can remove the deformed blooms and that might help?? Or just leave them to see what they do?

They are still pretty, but they sure were gorgeous last year!
