Touch-me-not Balsam

The Touch-me-not is a common plant in forests in Europe. It is able to exudate drops of sap on the tips or edges of leaves (Guttation), so that the plant looks wet, even by dry weather.

  3. I've been wanting to grow these for quite some time but have not succeeded yet. The flowers look so delicate, and as though they would attract hummingbirds?

  4. Nice looking plant - but I think its a real pest species.
