Thank you …, I have another similar looking one, but don’t know if the ID is correct.

Similar flowers, leaves can be found in sites like

http://www.natureloveyou.sg/Impatiens%20balsamina/Main.html and

http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/showimage/13447/.

But then this genus is extremely difficult.

I drove down to Chamba this weekend for a short break with family and found this growing on the hillsides between 640 and 1300m. I think this is the regular garden balsam and must have escaped sometime in the past. There were quite a few scattered populations of these. Please validate

attaching images to two Impateins for identification from Nashik. please identify


it may be something different.


Just guessing, could it be Impatiens lawii ?


This should be Impatiens balsamina var. coccinea (Wall.) Hook. f.; leaves cauline, alternate, deeply serrate, flowers pink or purple, axillary, solitary or fascicled with slender spur up to 2.5cm. 


In Impatiens lawii leaves are always oppositely arranged and sessile-to-subsessile. But in images leaves are alternate.


Impatiens lawii does not have spur but this balsam has.  I. lawii has opposite leaves but this has alternate leaves. Although photos are not that good, it looks like I. balsamina.

Sharing some pictures I guess is Impatiens balsamina L. (accepted name) shot at Pashupati Forest Kathmandu on 16 October 2016 at 4400 ft. 


Yes this all fist with Impatiens balsamina.  ‘Flowers of Himalaya’ say widely grown in gardens in Nepal – I have seen it growing along the roadside in Pokhara as if an escape from cultivation.

Native of SE Asia. Nasir in Balsaminaceae of Pakistan says cultivated as an ornamental in tropical and sub-tropical regions of India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Malaya and China. Several varieties known with flowers white, orange, pink-red or purple.

Known from 1200-1900m in Nepal.

ID of the balsam: want to know if this is something other than I. balsamina ?


Yes it is… Impatiens balsamina var rosea


The picture is too big and one must see the spur behind for a correct ID. The location would also help.


the plant was photographed in Igatpuri block of Nashik district.
I am fwding the link to the entire lot of pictures of the balsam


Thanks, the short spur (less than 1 cm) is I. rosea (current name) or syn I. balsamina var rosea as said by …

… most probably, Impatiens balsamina var rosea.
Recently … had posted similar balsam, ID as Impatiens balsamina var rosea
… commented about length of spur determining the ID


I too think that this could be Impatiens balsamina of Balsaminaceae family


.

These pictures of Impatiens balsamina are from a garden in Gujarat. I think the var. rosea is now a synonym.

This is probably the most common Imaptiens (Impatiens balsamina).


I think yes

Hairy fruits would have confirmed

Sharing a photograph of Impatiens sp. seen at Ajinkyatara Fort, Satara region. This is the only photograph available.


Believe it. It is a variety (mostly ‘rosea‘) of Impatiens balsamina. But seems an interesting variety if it totally lacks even a short spur (not so clearly visible in the photo). This balsam commonly exhibits a number of freaks, some I have seen with three spurs ! Hope this is not a freak and if all the plants in the population exhibit same character it may be worth studying it further, especially pollen, seed and chromosome numbers.


Thanks a lot … for the valuable inputs. I will surely keep a watch on this during next flowering season.

Impatiens balsamina L. ??

I think spur looks different than those at Impatiens balsamina


Pl. check comparative images at Impatiens

I did !


Please check I. rosea description and pictures in Dessai J.R.N., Janarthanam M.K. 2011. The genus Impatiens (Balsaminaceae) in the northern and parts of central Western Ghats. Rheedea 21,1: 23-80.


To me looks different from images at Impatiens rosea Lindl.


Seems like I. balsamina
