Balsam flowers in my Balcony



My small cozy balcony turns into grandeur because of this tiny lovely flowering pot...
It never fails to refreshen my mind whenever I need it...
Thanks to Nature God...




Impatiens balsamina (garden balsam, garden jewelweed, rose balsam, touch-me-not) is a species of Impatiens native to southern Asia in India and Burma.
It is an annual plant growing to 20–75 cm tall, with a thick, but soft stem. The leaves are spirally-arranged, 2.5–9 cm long and 1–2.5 cm broad, with a deeply toothed margin. The flowers are pink, red, mauve, lilac, or white, and 2.5–5 cm diameter; they are pollinated by bees and other insects, and also by nectar-feeding birds.[1] The ripe seed capsules undergo explosive dehiscence.[2]
