Himalayan Balsam (impatiens glandulifera)
Seen beside the river Trent at Attenborough. Himalayan Balsam was introduced to Europe from the Himalaya in the 19th century. It has now become a widespread and invasive pest along river banks. The long fruit capsules explode violently when ripe, scattering the seeds some distance from the plant.
