Jewelweed - Touch Me Not
The yellow one, Pale Touch-Me-Not shows up in limestone regions and southern Indiana is one of the foremost limestone regions in the world. We're famous for our limestone.
And our touch-me-not.
The common name 'touch-me-not' comes from the fact that the ripe seed pods explode when touched, shooting the seeds out and about. I've never tried it, but it sounds kind of fun.
