Jewelweed

A plant that loves to be near water. Called jewelweed because if a leaf is held underwater it appears silvery, and called touch-me-nots because when the seed pods are ripe enough, a light touch will make them pop open and shoot out their seeds. Native to the U.S.

Common Jewelweed, Touch-me-not, Spotted Jewelweed, Orange Balsam (Impatiens capensis)
