Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that there are no native Impatiens in CA, that Impatiens noli-tangere has a huge circumboreal range but comes no farther south than the WA-BC border, in Whatcom Co., and that even reports of it from OR are all errors for Impatiens capensis or Impatiens capensis X Impatiens ecalcarata, the former occurring in California as a waif through introductions as an ornamental.
