Impatiens capensis

Impatiens capensis

Common or spotted Jewelweed.  

A lover of wet spots, its vegetation is viscous, wet, and used as a wash when you may have been contacted by Poison Ivy.  The flowers are total bumble bee bait …just the right size and the spur at the back end is full of nectar.  The orange color is also highly attractive to hummingbirds as a bonus.  Flowers and pictures by Helen Lowe Metzman.
