Delaware Wildflowers • Guides
Impatiens capensis, Spotted Jewel-weed
Orange flowers; found throughout the state.
Impatiens pallida, Pale Jewel-weed
Yellow flowers; found only in the Piedmont.
When they are not in bloom, they can be distinguished by the leaves;
the teeth on the leaves of pale jewel-weed are much closer together.
Also, where the plants are growing side by side you may notice that the leaves
of pale jewel-weed tend to be a darker, more bluish green.
Pale jewel-weed is shown in the top half of the third photo below (photo by John Harrod.)
