What is the name of this plant please?

I've just bought several patio plants from focus, and the label is missing for this plant. Can anyone tell me its name?




Looks a bit like a New Guinea Impatiens, Geoffo.

It's impatiens, (busy lizzy) but one of the posher varieties, forgotten its proper name, will look it up later when I have time, but treat it the same as other busy lizzies - shady, lots of water, etc.

Thanks for your replies. Can I assume then that it is an annual

Yes it's an annual over there - over here we're lucky that these grow for years.

annual unless you take cuttings from them. have one at work that is 4 yrs old. it now they go outside when it gets half decent.

Bernieh is right New Guinea Impatiens...(busy lizzy)...

Yep. I agree. The New Guinea. I love the colour of the leaves on these.

Thanks for all your help. Nice looking plant, but disappointed, as I hadn't realised I had bought an annual
