Houseplant Depth

How deep does a pot need to be in order for impatiens to last the summer? I don't want to have to transplant it since it only lasts a year anyway.

The pot size should be approximately 1.5 times the diameter of the potted pot purchased. That means a 6” plant should be planted into a 9”–10” container. Three to four 6” plants should be potted into a 14”–16” container. This article will help with its care: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/impatiens/growing-impatiens-flowers.htm
