Good Morning,

I've recently planted a Painted Lady Hibiscus in my new flower bed, and sadly I'm also admitting that I'm semi-new to growing flowers in a flower bed. I have mostly in the past stuck to containers but have a side yard that gets a lot of sun, so thought I'd take advantage. This Hibiscus is the first plant that I've planted there and so far, it's blooming but the green leaves have remained semi-curled in on themselves despite how much I water them. I've been watering them daily and the soil around it seems to stay moist that I've noticed. Yet, like I say, the leaves remained curled in. The soil I used was a basic garden/flower soil with fertilizer and I mixed it in with the dirt already there. Any tips or ideas of what's causing the leaves to remain that way? Is that normal since it was planted a couple of days ago, and it's maybe still adjusting to the new environment? I've read everything I can find about the plant on the internet and the only answer I keep getting is that it's either under or over-watered. Thoughts?
