Burpee Jungle Jewels

I've ordered some of these as plants this year. Anyone ever tried them? The flowers are really different looking from the usual impatiens. They seem to be a different kind all together. The petals look like they stay kind of bud-like instead of opening up in the daisy-fashion.

These plants can be treated like the regular bedding type. They seem to be selected forms of African Orchids a seed series that they put out a few years ago. I was told that these are different forms of Impatiens auricoma but they seem a little different than the type sold as African Queen which is close to the true species.
