Hi yarrow. Impatiens a few years ago suffered from a virus that wiped out many of them. Now there are better, virus resistant varieties.
however, all of them prefer moist, cool, partial shade to full shade conditions. I grow the new sunpatiens varieties in shade and in sun but they do need moisture to,do well.
Take cuttings too ...they are easy in water.
Dont be nervous of growing impatiens.....your "failure" in the past was not your fault Remember.
