I recently planted some impatiens and they seems to be doing really well except for a few of the plants. Some look under watered but they have all been in the exact same conditions. Can anyone explain what is happening and how I can fix it or avoid it in the future?

Thanks in advance.

Impatiens love water, water, water, water and more water!
Traditional impatiens like a bright shady spot in the garden with perhaps a bit of early morning sun.
Too much sun is death to impatiens. Too much heat and too little water is death to impatiens.
New Guinea impatiens or "Sun Patiens" will do a little better but they are not great plants in the heat. You can water impatiens in the early morning and they faint, wilt, in the heat. Some days you will need to water them twice a day.
