Seen this herb, around 5 to 10cm tall at Eravikulam National Park, Munnar.

Mass flowering on the wet rocks was treat to eyes..

Looks like Impatiens goughii?? (Pl. validate the ID).

Family: Balsaminaceae,


what a rich spread. nice pictures. i also await validation by our experts


Images are not so clear however I guess the ID is correct.  


May be as per Impatiens goughii though looks slightly different in colour etc.
… has stated it to be highly variable species at Balsaminaceae, Geraniaceae, and Oxalidaceae week: Balsaminaceae :Impatiens goughii 040313 TBN 1
Still it is better to have more validation from net or experts though Dr. Bhaskar himself is no more, to help us (as he always did help us).

I think got validated in another thread at Impatiens goughii ?? at Munnar- PKA37 by …
