Impatiens capensis and Impatiens pallida.

 

A beautiful native wildflower that makes a great shady-partly shaded area pop with color. Seed pods are quite fun as they explode when touched, hence another common name touch-me-not. The sap of these plants is an excellent treatment for posion oak, poison ivy, poison sumac, and bug bites and stings. Stratification of seeds in the fridge or being planted in late fall/early winter/very early spring/ yields best results. Being a wild plant, these seeds germinate very sporadically. This is a mixture of yellow and common orange jewelweed. ~20 seeds minimum per packet.

 

This variety is part of our partnership with local Maryland seed saver and enthusiast Scott Malpass and his 'Scottland' Seed Business. A portion of sales of all varieties with Scott's Scottland association will be donated back to him to further support his seed saving work and community involvement in Maryland.
