Welcome to the NGA Alexp08!

The flower looks like a New Guinea impatiens but I've never seen a variegated one before. It's very pretty! Maybe sunpatiens is a new term for the New Guinea ones that can take sun? Regular impatiens typically grow in shady spots.

It's "SunPatiens". I'm not sure if there is another variegated one with white flowers but here's an example that looks close to yours
