Attractive orange streaked or spotted flowers dangle from slender, watery stems, often glistening in the sunshine. These delicate flowers give way to slender seed capsules which explosively split open at a touch when ripe, hence the common name of touch-me-not. The stem secretions of this native plant have been proven to act as a fungicide, and well as soothing skin irritations, such as those caused by poison ivy and stinging nettles. This beautiful wildflower is a particular attraction to the Ruby-Throated Hummingbird, as well as butterflies and bees. Upland game-birds enjoy eating the large seeds, so do not be surprised if Ruffed Grouse, Ring-Necked Pheasants, Prairie Chickens, and Bobwhite Quail are attracted to your fields or meadows!
