Impatiens noli-tangere / Kitsurifune キツリフネ


Impatiens noli-tangere, an annual height of 40-80cm, inhabit mountain streamsides or damp forests in hilly districts. Leaves with petioles are oblong, the tips dully pointed, 4-8cm long, and the margins have coarse serrations. Inflorescences droop from the leaf axils; they hang down 3-4cm-long light yellow flowers with slender peduncles. The stout part is one of the sepals, its basal part growing into a spur. There are three petals, but the lower two connate to become a lip. Bloom time: June-September.
