Project Data     (Last Modified On 6/3/2011)
Flower/Fruit: Fl. Per.: July-September.
Type: Type: NW. India: Kundau & Beas Valley, Edgeworth 1067 (K).
Distribution: Distribution: NW. Himalayas; Hazara, Kaghan vy. and eastward to Kashmir.
Comment/Acknowledgements: One of our commonest balsams, gregarious in shady and open places from 1800-3000 m. Morphologically very variable. The type specimen (K!) differs from our plants in the subserrate leaves, larger lateral sepals (up to c. 8 mm) and the gland tipped bracts. Small flowered forms of this species (spur + lower sepal 10-13 mm long), often more branched and with subserrate leaves, occur frequently with normal plants. Col. Gatacre’s, plants (K!) from Dir are under various manuscript names such as Impatiens gatacrei, Impatiens mirgagensis, which Hook. f. never published. They all appear to be Impatiens edgeworthii Hook. f., s1. and are provisionally placed here; as the flower colour is not given, at least one specimen (Gatacre 17083, K) however may be referable to Impatiens lemannii Hook. f.
