Impatiens auricoma?

I found this impatiens without a label at a nursery this spring. I've never grown this kind before but it has done very well for me. Can anybody identify it? (Click on "next" to see a closeup of the flowers.)

RE: Impatiens auricoma?

What you got there is Impatiens Jungle Gold. It is an improved form of auricoma but it my be a hybrid. It has a lot of red in it the basic species is yellow. I dont know if there are other color forms Impatiens African Orchid is said to be other color forms of the species but this I doubt. There are a number of closely related species that will cross with it.
