Hi Liz and welcome Welcome! There are lots of different reasons why leaves will turn yellow.

A couple of pictures of your plant would really help a lot to diagnose what's going on. One of the whole plant including where it is positioned, and a close-up of the yellowing leaves, please.

Hi Lizhuelsman, Welcome!

Can you post a photo of your Impatiens? Yellowing leaves can be caused by too much water, too little water, sunburn, even some pests. If you can upload a photo someone may be able to give suggestions as to the cause of the yellowing leaves.
