I would appreciate any suggestions on what this flower might be. It's growing in the shade on a mountain near Whitetop, Va. It has a deep cup and delicate hook in the back of the yellow flower.
(Apologies that I first posted this as a reply to another thread.)

It's an Impatiens of some kind.
We have orange ones here called Touch Me Nots. Impatiens capensis.
Nothing that's been done can ever be changed.

Thank you. Of course, an impatiens variety makes sense. I never thought of them as domestic wildflowers!
