Question Impatiants

I have grown these for years but I've never had this problem before.They are putting out runners or vines from the top,which are wrapping all of them together.Please tell me what is going on.Thanks,Kathy,Zone 8

Have you changed the varieties of impatiants you have planted?

We plant 3-4 different varieties of impatiens every year. Some of them send out runners but they are always on the ground or just under, never along the top of the plant.

I would simply prune the runners off or spike them to the ground if you want the plant to spread.
