these are growing heavily shaded by trees here in holland (USDA: 8a) and are flowering right now.
the pods burst when agitated, spreading the seeds over a few yards in all directions, the pod itself also come off cleanly.

That looks like impatiens balfourii, it just showed up in my garden this summer. It's kind of pretty and I've let it go to seed. Something tells me I'm going to regret this one, it looks very invasive. It is from asia.

well i found their easy to weed out if u need to.
i accidentaly pulled an entire plant out of the ground wilst trying to see if the pod would burst :S

the root system is very small compared to the plant itself...
