Q.

plant identification

Zone Florida | _Mary added on November 6, 2014 | Answered

This was the 1st picture of 2 - What is this flowering plant that comes in pink, coral and purple? Has hanging teardrop type seedlings that pop open when ripe or lightly squeezed. Grew in SW Pa 40+ years ago by my grandma. I found it growing by accident at a nursery here in FL. They did not know what it was. I would like to buy seeds/plants. Hope someone can help in recognizing it.

Looks like it might be Impatiens balsamina. AKA garden balsam, garden jewelweed, rose balsam, touch-me-not.
