Impatiens scabriuscula (Balsaminaceae) commonly known as the Spur less Balsam as a herbaceous plant endemic to the Western Ghats of Karnataka, Kerala and Tamil Nadu occurring on the periphery of evergreen forests at high altitudes.

Thanks ... for sharing..!! Beautiful images, I think common name spur less is due to small size of spur comparatively.. I would like to hear more..
