The two photos by KAMasud are not photos of Impatiens pallida but of another Impatiens species.
The flower and leaf morphology are wrong for I. pallida.

I'm not sure of the real identity but some closer possibilities are:
Impatiens cristata
Impatiens scabrida

Thanks! Smiling

Thanks. I'll move them to the genus entry, Impatiens, until we have a positive ID.

Don't find KAMasud in the member list anymore so no way to contact him/her to ask about the plant.

Oops, I now see that the photo in question was moved to the general Impatiens entry. Thumbs up
