I just purchased 6 plants from Home Depot. One was planted in a pot, the others in the ground. All receive full sun, but all the flowers have shriveled up and died. No new ones are blooming. I know they close at night, but these never opened once I planted them. Please advise.

I think your plants are just trying to adjust to their new homes. They will probably look a little puny while the roots are getting established. When they do finally adjust, you can expect healthy new foliage and lots of flowers the rest of the season. You can trim off any spent flowers and those that are unopened. Cutting back will encourage the development of new flowers and stems. Best wishes with your Gazinia!
