I have this plant all over my yard. It is about one to two feet tall and half foot across. Is it edible? Please help me id this.

    It’s difficult to get a sense of scale from the photos (Just how large are they?) But they look a bit like Jewel Weed, a weed that is kin to Impatiens and is reputed to relieve the itching of poison ivy.

    They are range from one to two feet tall at this point and 6 inch to 12 inch wide. Each leaf is 2-3inches long and 1-2 inches wide. I hope this help.
