Impatiens flowers are bright and cheerful annuals that can light up any dark and shady part of your yard. They are very sensitive to lack of water and will wilt quickly if too dry. You can use impatiens flowers as bedding plants, border plants or in containers. They enjoy moist but well draining soil and are partial to deep shade. They do not do as well in full sun. Impatiens flowers do best if fertilized regularly. Use water soluble fertilizer on your impatiens every two weeks through spring and summer. There is no need for the flowers to be deadheaded. They will self clean their spent blooms and will bloom profusely all season long.
