Dopati Ful(দোপাটি ফুল) - Impatiens balsamina

Share at Facebook

আজকের ফুলের নাম দোপাটি ফুল. সাধারণত বাগানে লাগানো হয়. পায়ে চলা রাস্তার পাশে সারিভাবে এই ফুলের গাছ লাগানো হয়. লাল, গোলাপী, বেগুনী, কমলা, সাদা, ইত্যাদি রঙের হয়ে থাকে এই ফুল. এই ফুলের পরিপক্ক ফলকে ছুয়ে দেয়া মাত্রই স্প্রিং এর মতন লাফ দিয়ে ফেটে যায়. ফেটে যাবার সময় কালো ছোট ছোট বীজগুলো ছড়িয়ে পড়ে চারপাশে. এই ফুলের কোনো গন্ধ নাই, শুধু মাত্র বর্ণ দিয়েই মানুষকে মুগ্ধ করে.

During my childhood the seed of this flower was more interesting to us instead of the flower. The mature seedpod burst like a spring if anyone touches that. That interesting thing was a lovely toy to us. The name of that flower is Dopati Ful(দোপাটি ফুল).

This annual herbaceous plant grows 45-60cm in height(a bit bushy). Slight transparent stems are thick but soft. Leafs are spirally arranged around the stem. Leafs are having a shape like boat(fat at middle) with minuscule thorn at the border of the leaf.

Pollination of the flower is done by the insects, bees, and nectar suckling birds. A ripe soft seedpod use to burst from a touch and the seeds use to spread around. For this reason people call this "touch me not" flower.

This is an ornamental flower. Most gardeners used to plant this flower at garden, specially under the full sunlight. I haven't seen this flower at indoor gardens, like pots.
