Orange Balsam

Orange Balsam
Orange balsam, like Himalayan balsam, is an invader that has become established in the wild throughout south-east England. This one was found growing on the banks of the River Thames at Teddington. I find its flowers stunningly beautiful and from what I've been able to find out it is less of a threat to native fauna than its Himalayan cousin. Providing this is the case, it looks to be a welcome addition.

It looks nice as any Garden Impatience, but I like the regular pale yellow Western Touch-me-not in it's simplicity better in nature.

Bonny shot, Roy, but a horror to deal with.

Thanks again Joan. Is it as bad as Himalayan balsam? This plant looked much less vigorous.
