  1. Ah, that is a New Guinea impatien. Although not quite as profuse in bloom as the common impatien or busy Lizzie, they bloom with richer color and larger flowers, and some have nicely variegated foliage. They are grown more as potted plants, rather than as common bedding plants, and are more likely to survive as perennial.

      • Oh, no. They would succumb to even mild frost. They are tropical. They might be grown as houseplants there, or potted plants that live inside through winter, and then outside through summer. (Most people do not keep them for very long. Like poinsettias, they are likely to get discarded as the mature.
