these are growing heavily shaded by trees here in holland (USDA: 8a) and are flowering right now.
the pods burst when agitated, spreading the seeds over a few yards in all directions, the pod itself also comes off cleanly.

I too went through my Wildflower ID for about an hour.

Definately a trait of the Jewelweed, in my area, Zone 5, they are yellow, orange, red, but I have never heard of purple, crazy. They are pretty common along streams.

They are also called the Touch-me-not, the jewelweed name comes from the the accumulation of dew that looks like jewels. Hummingbirds really dig 'em.
