The effect seen here has been ongoing for about two weeks.  Should last a 
bit longer.  Ipomopsis rubra.  It will give some welcome shade to the iris 
planted, but it's not going to be a protection from the grasshoppers which 
are beginning their annual hunt for forage.  They don't bother the rubra, 
but the iris are already being notched and chewed on.  It does seem to be 
limiting the leaf spot.  At least it's not as bad in these beds as in other 
places.  For the time being anyway.  As hot and dry as it's been, you'd 
think I wouldn't have leaf spot at all, but just a day or two of rain and 
got virulent.  Hard to knock out, too.
