Impatiens balsamina
Garden Balsam
Southeastern Asia

 
 
3 sepals (one forming a spur) and 5 petals.
 
Glandular petioles with bluntly toothed leaves.
 

 
Many species of impatiens are called "touch me not" because they have pressure sensitive, exploding (dehiscent) capsules that scatter the seed away from the plant when ripe.
