Let's see your beautiful weekend flowers!
Here is my little wildflower:
Impatiens balfourii-Kashmir balsam is a member of the huge impatiens family, frequently called, touch-me-not flowers.
They are native to the mountainous regions of Kashmir, brought to Europe as garden plants. Now they grow wild along rivers and sites with increased humidity.
Unlike its garden variety, the Impatiens Balsamina, these plants grow much taller (over 100cm tall) forming large colonies mostly along rivers and places with increased humidity.
Its small flowers are very beautiful with a white sepal forming a thin spur. The other two petals are lavender or pink, extending forth from the mouth. I took these photos in our backyard but they look more stronger when growing wild.
