Impatiens pallida - Yellow Jewelweed
This is a listing for pack of 10 seeds of this pretty perennial.
Native to the USA, this is known by a large number of common names including Jewelweed, Touch me not and Busy Lizzie. It is a temeperate perennial member of this group of plants often represented in the garden by more tropical, less hardy species. It grows to 1.5 to 3 metres tall, with a spread of a metre.
The flowers are golden coloured and adapted for pollination by bees. If pollinated they are followed by a fleshy capsule containing several seeds. As it approaches ripening, it will literally explode at the slightest touch, expelling the seeds a distance from the parent plant.
The seeds are difficult to collect due to this dispersal mechanism and this is represented by the count. They are easy to grow and require double stratification (1 month warm, 1 month cold, then back warm). It is hardy in zones 3 to 8.
