Same here, a little confusing the way you phrased your question, but on a guess - annual impatiens bloom well in bright shade or even morning sun, but will need extra water if they are getting direct sun, depending upon where you are (please fill in your profile with your city/state/country).

Perennial and New Guinea impatiens are more sun tolerant, but here in Florida (very warm, and intense sun) I find they still do better with shade during the hottest part of the day, from about 11am until after 4pm.

Calif_Sue, it's phrased like ASL so i'm going out on a limb here and saying they may be deaf and it may not be English.
