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.

Early Summer to Fall this plant blooms an orange, trumpet-shaped flower with red, white, or yellow spots. The bloom has 3 petals on each one and has a long spur at the end, so pollinators can reach the nectar inside.  These plants are very colorful as they bloom and supply beautiful orange blooms that bring life to all gardens.  They attract those beautiful hummingbirds as they bloom.  They also have unique blossoms that provide a beautiful natural look.

Jewelweed is a type of impatiens that forms a beautifully bright orange bloom. It has a small, pouch-like flower with a long spur in the middle and oval-shaped leaves. This annual flower is self-seeding and typically grows two to five feet in height. Seedlings will sprout in early spring and flowering begins in mid-summer until the first frost.

Jewelweed is a typical plant used in flower beds or hanging baskets and loves partially shaded areas.
