Jewelweed Plant 3 For $11.99 Description

Jewelweed Plant, Impatiens Capensis, is a Colorful Blooming Plant 

The jewelweed plant is commonly mistaken for its cousin, the yellow Jewelweed. They are native to North America. They can be found throughout the majority of the United States of America. Although one might assume the name "jewelweed" comes from this plant's bright, colorful orange flowers, it gets its name from its broad-toothed leaves.

The leaves are large enough that when it rains or dew forms, the water droplets collect and pool on the surface of the leaves. These droplets reflect sunlight, making the leaves look covered in sparkling jewels. These tender plants can grow between 0.5-2.5 meters (1.6-6.5 feet) high. The flowers can grow up to 9 centimeters wide (3.5 inches.) Their stems are thin, succulent, and translucent.

This allows them to share garden space with other plants without choking out the other plants growing around it. This plant appreciates moist and shaded areas and is easy to grow along streams or marshes. This perennial annually blooms between June and October. During this time, the flowers attract butterflies and nectar-drinking birds. The flower's trumpet-shaped petals and bright coloration make these plants ideal for attracting hummingbirds.

They do not threaten any wildlife and are easy to control. This makes these plants an excellent choice for any environmentally conscious garden. Native Americans have historically used the juices made from crushing these plants to remedy poison ivy, stinging nettle, and insect bites. At least one peer-review study supports using the plant's juice to soothe skin rashes and itching ailments. Crushing the orange flowers can also form an all-natural yellow and orange dye.

 Jewelweed Plant, Impatiens Capensis Attract Butterflies and Nectar Drinking Birds 

 Instead, it is the plant's centuries-long use as an effective treatment for poison ivy and poison oak why people love growing it in their gardens so much. Herbalists, botanists, and horticulturalists use this perennial on poison ivy and other severe skin rashes by cutting the stem and rubbing the juice onto the affected skin. Even clinical studies have proven its effectiveness. This plant is easy to take care of and will also attract honeybees and hummingbirds that arrive throughout the year to fertilize the plants.

The flowers thrive in various parts of Canada and the eastern region of the U.S., the Pacific Northwest, and Colorado. This perennial does well in USDA hardiness zones 2-11. Jewelweed has been around for years, and over the years, the plant has been used by herbalists to treat poison oak and ivy. This plant is also used to treat skin orders. This article shall discuss some of the uses and benefits of using Jewelweed.

 The best way to deal with Ivy Rash Poison is by prevention; however, there are some incidences where you contact Ivy Rash by accident. Ivy Rash is known to cause awful itching; the only way to relieve that is by applying the extracts from the Jewelweed. However, if the case is severe, you have to make sure you go the extra mile in extracting the extracts from the plant, and that is why buying jewelweed extract is more convenient when compared to extracting the extract yourself.

This perennial also comes in handy when you develop scabs; however, in this case, you need to rub the infected place longer; also, when one develops a scab, it takes longer for the blisters to heal. These perennials salves and poultices are natural remedies for burns, sprains, sores, ringworms, eczema, ringworm, and bruises.

 Maybe you are wondering what to do when your body immediately comes into contact with a poison ivy plant and you don't have any jewelweed. You should take these three steps within the first ten minutes; the first step is to gently rub alcohol into the infected area, rinse the place with water, and then use soap and warm water to wash the affected area thoroughly. It helps prevent the poison ivy's urushiols from reacting with the skin proteins.

 Jewelweed works to completely neutralize the urushiol, an antigen oil produced by poison ivy. The Urushiol oil can be carried and then transferred to your skin by many things such as toys, clothing, pet fur, and of course, shoe.
