On the short life of a hibiscus flower

Remember those hibiscus plants I bought on Monday? Well the first bloom opened on Wednesday:

Isn't it perfect?

The internet insisted blooms only last a day but I ignored it because I'm optimistic.

Sadly I was wrong:

The next morning the original bloom was shriveled up and a few hours later it fell off the plant.

Luckily there was a new bloom in its place!

The other tree doesn't seem to like our backyard. Some of its leaves are browning and none of the blooms are even close to opening.
