What is this?

Could you please tell me the name of this plant. Are they outdoor or should they be treated as houseplants? There is another one with lavender floor flowers.I've had them out during the summer and they were very happy and flowered heavily. I've now taken them indoors and wonder will they last the winter. They are very thirsty, they droop but spring back to life when watered. Any advice is greatly appreciated. TessL, Courtown Harbour, Co Wexford Posted: 09/10/2016

That is busy lizzie or also called impatiens, an indoor plant, and there are forms that can be used as bedding plants in summer.
