Too much fertilizer can cause leggy plants and reduced flowering. Pinch them back to 6 inches and they should regrow as bushier plants. Leggy plants are also fixed by trimming off the plant so that it looks more like a bush shape.

Wilting may be a sign of stress. This article may help pinpoint the problem: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/impatiens/impatiens-problems.htm
