It is I. puberula - very characteristic view of flower in profile.
And colour - not very common amongst Impatiens.

Impatiens puberula DC. :  White ??

Very interesting pictures - everything looks like in I. puberula apart colour...
I think we could safely determine this plant as white form of I. puberula.
Congratulations!

Thank you ...! Any variation name like alba or something?
I don't remember seeing such white form, and literature dealing with this species is limited.
For my curiosity, it was one plant or whole group?

It was only one I have seen at that time. I shall check in the next season and let you know.

Congratulations!
Was it one white flowered plant amongst othere blue or violet? Or bigger group of white flowered plants?
Only one plant at that location which bears pure white flowers only.
It was in August last year I shot at the same location. That is the only plant this year as well.

chance meeting up with a rare color then. wonder what happened to self seeding of these plants ?
I suppose there could be at least some white flowered plants.
Thank you ... May be I can try next season and look for more plants.
