I am not a fan of the New Guinea impatiens that is now being offered as the
replacement for the no longer available Walleriana. The leaves look like
they are made of silk.
A neighbor has some different type of impatiens. It is taller than the
Walleriana. He'd like to know what type it is so that he can buy it again
Not any type of impatiens. A favorite of mine for container planting.
The scientific name is Catharantus roseus, but they are usually sold as
"Vinca" or "Periwinkle".
Some stellar examples of cultivars:
They are usually happier in part sun (especially morning sun)
rather than full shade.
