The Jewel Weed 1/4 to 1/2" long leaves that are long-oval, long-stalked with rounded teeth. The lower leaves are opposite, and the upper leaves are alternate.

Though their attractive orange flowers must be cross-pollinated by insects or hummingbirds, they also have flowers that never open. These flowers will fertilize themselves without another flower. Jewelweed is a typical plant used in flower beds or hanging baskets and loves partially shaded areas.
