We have jewelweed on our property and it grows in many wooded areas of our state. It is more a plant and may be shrublike since I have only seen it waist tall with yellow-orange minute flowers. It grows near poison ivy and that is handy since if you get poison ivy resin on you and then crush and use the jewelweed it is said to prevent the itch. Perhaps you did see a tree since our medicines are derived from plants anyway and this tree lives in a tropical climate. The latin names would make it more clear of what we each speak of. Thanks for sharing.

I have heard of this tree before, and like others it does have healing properties. Onother tree would be Tea tree and Chaste Tree. It is amazing how they find out about these natural remeidies, but because they are not "regulated" by the FDA they are not widley accpted.
