Description
Flower of Indian balsam (Impatiens glandulifera), also known as Himalayan balsam. This is an invasive riverside plant now common in the UK. Here is a close up of one of the common pink / red flowers. The complicated 3D form of the flower is just one of the points of interest regarding this 'weed'. This is a tall wildflower, known in the Americas as ornamental jewelweed. Taken beside a river in Surrey, UK.
