Himalayan Balsam

Yet another plant that is invading the waterways.
 This one escaped from gardens.
The seed pods burst, and fling their seeds huge distances.
 Then they just float downstream...

I know. Terrible invasive species we have.
Cheers from Cottage Country!

The flower is pretty but they are very prolific and invasive. A neighbour has some in her garden and they have spread to neighbour's yards are more numerous in her own this year.

Hi there - these are nice looking plants - its a shame that they are so invasive. We use to have the same problem with this plant in the UK.
