Spotted Jewelweed

Impatiens capensis


These are quite common around our streams and ponds. They have several small, orange flowers and grow in large clusters around water.


The seed pods, when they're ready, are designed to "pop" with even the slightest touch. They're spring-loaded! This flings the seeds in various directions.
