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.

Bummer.
