Impatiens plants are annuals and will be hard to winter over, even indoors, but you can certainly try. They will need a bright window indoors and well draining soil. Pinch the stems back to keep them from getting leggy. Overwintering impatiense is not always successful but if you can keep them from setting seeds after they flower you'll have a better chance of keeping them alive.
