Pink Rose Balsam

Impatiens balsamina, commonly known as Garden Balsam, Rose Balsam, or Touch-Me-Not, is prized for its vibrant cup-shaped flowers. Seed pods burst upon touch, scattering seeds... hence "touch-me-not." To collect seeds, place a paper bag beneath the pod before touching. These colorful blooms attract bees and butterflies, enhancing your garden's biodiversity.

The Brief and Glorious History of the Pink Rose Balsam

In Asia, these plants serve as multi-purpose beauty aids, dyeing hair, nails, and even hands and feet. Moreover, Asian traditional medicine values their stems, leaves, and seed oil for improving blood circulation and alleviating pain and sore throats. The name "Impatiens" and "Touch-Me-Not" offer intriguing insights into the flower's nature. Once the flowers fade, they produce seed pods eagerly waiting to burst and scatter seeds. Handling them post-drying requires caution; even a breeze can trigger their explosion. So, unless you're ready to sow seeds, it's best to heed their name—"touch-me-not."
