Impatiens make beautiful temporary groundcovers in shade gardens. They also can be planted among shade-loving perennials such as hostas to bring summer-long color to shady flower beds. Plant them in large drifts and let them fill in, or use them as edging plants along walkways, terraces, or at the front of a bed or border. Impatiens even make nice additions to container plantings. Hummingbirds, butterflies, and other beneficials visit many species of impatiens.
