touch-me-not flower

ramblincathyApril 7, 2011

I am looking for a flower that we always had when I was growing up in N.E. TN. It was called "touch me not". It had fuzzy pods that seeds were in,and popped open when touched.

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Hi, Cathy~~that would be garden balsam or 'balsam impatiens'. It's a lovely annual which tends to reseed--three guesses why, LOL!
