The plant family Balsaminaceae was named and described by Achille Richard in Dictionnaire Classique d’Histoire Naturelle in 1822.
As of 12-2-22 when this page was last updated, Plants of the World Online lists two accepted genera in this family, Hydrocera and Impatiens. The Hydrocera genus only has one 1 accepted species while the genus Impatiens contains 1,093. Those numbers could change as updates are made on POWO.
Impatiens capensis (Jewelweed) is the only species in the family I am familiar with on the farm. It can become quite invasive
