How can I propagate Impatiens "Congo Cockatoo"?

I recently bought an Ipatiens "Congo Cockatoo" plant, quite unusual with exotic "Cockatoo looking" flowers. Does anyone know how I can propagate it - seed or cuttings?

Propagate by cuttings, you don't see this plant very often and it is not hardy.

I propagate them by cutting the stems of the side with a few leaves once they stem has started to turn woody. Place them in water until roots start to grow then plant out. They like lots of water and some sun but not too hot. I find a window that gets morning sun is ideal for them.
