Renowned botanist Thomas Nuttall collected the first known specimen of this wildflower on one of several expeditions to the Rocky Mountain region. Nuttall, an Englishman who lived and worked in America for many years, documented many native species formerly unknown to science. The genus name "Impatiens" comes from the plant's "impatient" habit of forcibly expelling its seeds from their pods. The species name "pallida" comes from the pale yellow color of the unusual blossoms. Because of its legendary healing qualities, this plant has a prominent place in folk medicine as a treatment for poison ivy, bug bites, rashes, and other skin complaints.
