I was going through some of my old pictures and I found these three.

As I remember it, all three were growing wild in an abandoned park.




All three were surprisingly tiny.

There are native Impatiens and introduced Impatiens in North America, however both are useful for temporary relief from insect bites or stings.

The yellow ones are a less common species than the orange ones but here in Pennsylvania we have both.

I. pallida (yellow) is also uncommon up here in Southern Ontario. The introduced I. glandulifera (pink) and the native I. capensis (orange) are equally common (for now).

Edit: Forgot to add that Impatiens really earned the common name "touch-me-not". I get pelted with Impatiens seeds every fall when breezes trigger the seed capsules on plants in the parks near my home.

I have never seen the pink ones. Just Googled it. They're strangely pretty (which a lot of invasive species tend to be...).

There is something quite attractive about I.glandulifera but it is an extremely invasive species around here. Small waterways are getting choked by it around here and it is spreading to lakes and ponds as well now.
There is an occasional white form that pops up that is almost garden worthy..........

Pretty, pretty.

They (all the colors) vaguely remind me of some orchids I have seen.
Keep going!
