Full Sun Varieties

I used to grow Super Elfen Impatiens with a lot of sun in an eastern exposure with great results, but I found that too much sun wilted them.

This year I see Burpee touting MangoTango Impatiens as a full sun flower, and Park has Sunny Lady, that "thrives in partial to full sun."

Well, I am scared to put Impatiens in the full sun, but it would be cool to have them in the garden.

Are these varieties really hardy enough or are these claims exaggerated?

RE: Full Sun Varieties

Mango Tango is a NG hybrid type. Here in the Cal Valley it gets hot and I have seen the bedding type in full sun as well but I dont know the variety. They need water though but the did really well. As a general rule they dont like full sun, bright light is good though.
