I love these cute little flowers! They grow along the
banks of my creek, and the migrating Ruby-throated
Hummingbirds swarm them.

They are beautiful, but diminutive. (The flowers are dimunitive, not the plants.)

Did you know the juice from the plant stems can be used as a treatment for poison ivy.

Thanks for that info jpw, I'm gonna check it out.

RE: Impatiens capensis

Anybody have any luck growing the yellow one, I. pallida? I have the orange one naturally in the Piedmont but would also like to have the yellow one. I see it in the mts. in NC and have even tried to get it started here, but with no luck. Any suggestions...other than more rain or cooler weather.
