Busy Lizzies

I visited England last year and saw the Busy Lizzie Impatiens flowering beautifully. I would like to grow some this year but cannot find this name in the seed catalogs that I have. Can anyone tell me which of our Impatiens are the same as Busy Lizzie or are they a separate breed of their own? Or, where can I get these seeds from in North America?

I think they're what we call New Guinea Impatiens here. You can order the seeds in pellets from Park or TM, especially if you want the bigger bloom variety. Around here, the ones I see don't have very big blooms, but some do have stripes.
