I bought this Impatiens in a hanging planter at a local nursery. The guy there wasn't sure what the variety was. It's a very small-flowered, small-leafed variety, and looking on the web I believe it may be one of the Firefly series of mini-Impatiens. It has a low, trailing habit. Can anyone verify this? Thanks in advance for your help.

Hi Weatherguesser, I looked up various photos of the 'Firefly Series' and the patterns on your flowers don't match.
The flower patterns are very distinct, but so far I can't find other plants that look like yours.
