Grow Jewel Weed, or Touch-Me-Not, in Damp. Shady Spots
If you ever take a walk along a stream in the woods on a summer's day, you may see some delightful orange flowers in the shade. You could be looking at a patch of Jewelweed. Jewelweed is a hardy but beautiful flower that grows along streams or damp shady areas in the eastern part of the country. It's our American version of impatiens. The 2 natives are Spotted Jewelweed (sort of orange) and Pale Jewelweed (yellow). Although it's an annual, jewelweed spreads out and competes with weeds attempting to grow nearby.
