This Impatiens was seen at many places throughout Tamhini ghat near Pune, MH in Aug 2019.

Impatiens minor syn Impatiens kleinii 

There is also Impatiens minor var. hirsuta in addition to Impatiens minor in efi site
Can you observe hirsute nature of standard or not as it can not be properly seen from posted images?

Thanks … The images have been clicked at various places, only for a couple of pics I could see some very tiny hairs on the leaf. Am uploading some cropped pics.
Would this be classified as the hirsute nature of standard?
Please advise.
