Do Impatiens attract Bees?

My Daughter's Mother-in-Law is highly allergic to Bee Stings. My daughter wants to plant Impatiens. They bloom almost year around here in Florida. I don't remember ever having seen Bees around Impatiens, but want to be sure.

If you are just talking of the regular bedding type... no.
Impatiens glandulifera and I. balfourii do.
The natural pollinators of the bedding (I. walleriana)are butterflies in their native Africa.

Thank you. That is a relief. We are trying to learn which plants are safe for her to be around.
