Can I grow New Guinea impatiens in pretty much an all shade area? One area gets no sun at all and the other gets afternoon sun.

New Guinea impatiens do best in areas with morning sun and afternoon shade. They have a tendency to not produce as many flowers and can become leggy in full shade. Afternoon sun is the hottest of the day and there is a hybrid variety of New Guinea impatiens called Sunpatiens that would thrive in full afternoon sun.
