This member of the Balsaminaceae family was described by Joseph Dalton Hooker in 1891. It is found on the Malaysian island Langkawi and in Thailand. It grows in a rich soil with lots of water in summer, and some sun. The swollen stem can grow up from fifteen to 40 centimetres in diameter and the plant 60 to 120 centimetres high.

The genera name means 'impatience', referring to the fruits which pops when ripe and touched. The species name means 'remarkable' or 'admirable'.
