Touch Me Not (Impatiens capensis)

This strange little plant, also known as jewel weed, is great for attracting humming birds and butterflies. A decoction of the stems, leaves and flowers is an excellent antidote to poison ivy. The plant is called touch me not, because the seed pods "explode" when touched.
