Jewelweed
(Impatiens capensis)

Spotted Touch-Me-Not

An extremely common flower in wet, shady areas, blooming from June to frost. The pendent, orange-yellow flower, speckled with red hang like little jeweled cornucopias. Speckled red-orange and pure-yellow varieties. The smooth leaves grow on succulent stems. The seedpods become spring-loaded as they dry; exploding at a touch and scattering the seeds - hence "Touch-Me-Not".
