I haven't had much luck treating flowers without destroying the blooms. Hopefully someone else can help you. Good luck!

Petal blight (botrytis) is usually caused by getting water on the petals causing a fungus to start. You can't get it to go away but can prevent it from getting worse by not getting water on the petals.
