The leaves and buds look like double impatiens, but that flower has a face almost like a viola. Can anyone identify for me?

Thanks for your response! Earlier today, someone on the "name that plant" forum had pointed me to Mr. Impatiens' website where I quickly discovered that it is, indeed, butterfly impatiens. Pretty!
