Description

Spotted Touch Me Not Plant

The spotted touch-me-not plant is often called jewelweed. This plant thrives in shaded areas where it will stay consistently moist in growing zones 2 to 11.
This attractive option usually grows to be about two feet tall, and it often spreads to be about 2.5 feet wide. The spotted touch-me-not plant will continue to grow taller and broader until late summer.

Spotted Touch-me-not Flowers
This plant produces flowers on single leaf axils in the summer. The orange flowers that may have a yellow tinge have reddish-brown spotting. These dangling flowers are often about one inch long. They have a unique cornucopia shape and rear spurs.

If you examine this plant closely, you will also notice flower buds that never open. These buds are minuscular and appear on the lower part of the plant. It can be tough to see them because this plant’s beautiful foliage often hides them.



Spotted Touch-me-not Seed Capsules

 

After the flowers fade in the fall, this plant puts on seed capsules. If you bump the capsules, they will split open and disperse the seeds. The next spring, the seeds will sprout and grow another plant. While this plant is an annual, you can count on it reappearing in the spring for many years because of its ability to dispense seeds.

Spotted Touch-me-not Leaves
The spotted touch-me-not also has bluish-green leaves that are oval with very coarse teeth. Each leaf can be up to 3.5 inches long. Each leaf can be up to one inch wide. Leaves appear alternatively, with one leaf appearing on each leaf node.

The spotted touch-me-not plant's leaves are unusual because they have a special coating that repels water. While water usually drops off, if the leaf is horizontal, the water drops stay on the leaves and look like sparkling jewels.

Why Choose the Spotted Touch-me-not
You will find this plant beneficial for several reasons. First, if you get a case of poison ivy, rub some of the juice from this plant on the spot, and the itching will stop. Secondly, this colorful plant is a great way to attract hummingbirds and butterflies to your yard. It is a very healthy option that most pests will leave alone.

This plant thrives in soils where others often have trouble growing. Therefore, it is a beautiful addition to low spots in your landscaping or a native plant garden. If you have a water feature in your landscaping, consider planting this option along its side. It also does well in clay and other soils, where many plants have trouble pushing their roots through the soil.
