Description

Impatiens pallida, with the common names pale jewelweed, pale touch-me-not, or yellow jewelweed, is a flowering annual plant native to Canada and the United States. It produces flowers from midsummer through fall.

The plant can grow up to 2 metres (6 ft 7 in) in height. The flowers are yellow, with reddish-spots on their faces, differentiating the plant from the similar Impatiens capensis, which has orange flowers. They are tube or funnel shaped and 3–4 centimetres (1–1.5 in) long, with nectar stored at a narrow spur at the back of the flower. The flowers cluster in small quantities among the upper leaves. After blooming, the flowers are replaced by a narrow seed pod up to 3 centimetres (1 in) long. When the seeds are ripe, they explode from the pod when touched, giving the plant its common name, touch-me-not.

I. pallida is native in the United States from North Dakota to the north and west, Georgia to the south, and Maine to the east. In Canada, it is native in Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Newfoundland, and Nova Scotia. It can be found in wet, soggy soils, such as along ponds and streams, in swamps, in moist deciduous woodlands, and in wet thickets. Interestingly it also tends to tolerate drier soil, more than Impatiens capensis.

Touch-me-not is a plant many people have interest in because some say it is an antidote to Poison Ivy and Stinging Nettle.

Hardiness zones: 3-8

Location: Shade or part shade

Seeds per pack: 5

Germination: Start these seeds right away for best germination rates. If you receive these seeds summer or fall, they can be planted directly outdoors and they will grow naturally in the spring. Otherwise if it is winter or spring, start these seeds indoors right away. Obtain a planting container that has holes in the bottom for excess water to drain. Use regular soil, nothing amended with fertilizers or manure of any kind. A seed start mix can also be used if mixed with 1/3 sand. Place the seeds just below the surface of the soil and water lightly. Place the container in the fridge for 90 days, and then put into warmth for them to germinate. Keep lightly most until germination. Plant outdoors once the chance of frost is passed.
