New form of Impatiens scabrida in my garden

I was walking through the garden today and found this beautiful new form, or maybe hybrid, of Impatiens scabrida. It is so vividly spotted, it reminds me of a foxglove. The leaves are also a little different from my other scabridas (sort of blueish) and the stem is actually woody. It has some seedpods, but they don't look like they are going to amount to anything, so I am going to try to root a cutting.

The flower looks like orchids to me. Good luck.

That plant has fabulous flowers! Wow good find! Any updates on your attempt to clone it?

No success with cloning. I only took two cuttings, as the plant was not too substantial. -I was hoping it would live over the winter, since I. scabrida sometimes does here, but unfortunately it didn't. I did get seeds from it though and currently have 15 tiny just emerged seedlings. When the time comes, I plan to plant them out in an isolated spot and see what happens!
