I had a beautiful bed of impatiens back in Colorado and I'm wondering
if I can grow impatiens in Phoenix. Is it too hot?

Impatiens in Phoenix Arizona, hmmmm...

I don't have any personal experience with them, but I have read they will do well over the winter if you plant them in October. They like partial shade. They also like an acidic soil so growing in large pots might be the easiest way as opposed to our native soil which is alkaline.
