Description: Impatiens is a genus of about 850 to 1,000 species of flowering plants. Together with the genus Hydrocera, Impatiens make up the family Balsaminaceae. Common names include impatiens, jewelweed, touch-me-not, snapweed, patience. Some species are annual plants and produce flowers from early summer until the first frost, while perennial species, found in milder climates, can flower all year. The leaves are entire and shiny; their upperside has a thick, water-repellent cuticula that gives them a greasy feel. Particularly on the underside of the leaves, tiny air bubbles are trapped over and under the leaf surface, giving them a silvery sheen that becomes pronounced when they are held under water. Impatiens flowers are bright and cheerful annuals that can light up any dark and shady part of your yard.

Impatiens have been used as herbal remedies for the treatment of bee stings, insect bites, and stinging nettle (Urtica dioica) rashes. They are also used after poison ivy (Toxicodendron radicans) contact to prevent a rash from developing.

Colour: Pink

Care: Balsams grow both in and out of direct sunlight; they prefer moist, rich soils, like roadside ditches, reed beds, fens, river banks and forest edges, and many are well able to colonize disturbed ruderal locations. They enjoy moist but well draining soil and partial to deep shade.
