I Love Congo Impatiens! I've been growing them for almost 20 years from one original plant. They live usually 2 or 3 years and then cuttings have to be taken.
It tolerates unbelievably high temps with no problems at all.

Dottydaisy2:

They are tough little plants. I don't give them any special care...in fact, they are somewhat neglected at times. They do need regular watering though. Mine will wilt if it gets really hot and has not water.(they always come back though). It also has a very long blooming period...from Feb - Dec. here in San Diego.
