the leaves are similar to an impations .The flowers are about the size and shape of a broad bean seed,yellow at the top and red for the bottom two thirds. they are tubular and end in a long tube which turna up to the top of the flower.

Hi, welcome from me too, have a look at Impatiens niamniamensis 'Congo Cockatoo' it needs a minimum winter temperature of 59f, so could be classed as a house plant, Derek.
