Breeding breakthrough Impreza offers a range of colors plus unique patterns.

Colors are Blue Pearl, Cherry Splash, Pink Splash, Red, Rose, Salmon, Violet, White and 7 mixes.

Impatiens Super Elfin in seven colors by PanAmerican Seed
Super Elfin XP varieties deliver a tight, 5 to 7-day flowering window across all colors–core and novelty–so all plants ship at the same time to meet market dates. XP also assures exceptionally uniform habit and plant vigor, consistency of early flowering, and bigger blooms than the competition. The broad colour range lets you mix and match any Super Elfin XP variety to achieve the most uniform impatiens crop. Colors are Cherry Splash XP, Lilac XP, Red Starburst XP, Rose Starburst XP, Violet XP Improved, Violet Starburst XP and Starburst Mix XP
