Commenting again so participants can see it: Prairie Moon Nursery online native nursery sells Jewel Weed (Impatiens capensis). The use its other common name: Spotted Touch-Me-Not. When planting natives, it’s super important to make sure the plant’s natural growing habits are appropriate to your own garden.

I see that the other Puryear sculpture you showed with a shackle he entitled “Column for Sally Hemmings.” Sally Hemmings was Thomas Jefferson’s slave with whom he had several children.
