I bought these plants about a month ago, they were lush and green with budding flowers. Now I look at them every morning and I feel sad. I have posted photos for you guys to get an idea what i'm talking about.

they still look lush and green to me. I don't know what kind they are, but not all plants will continuously bloom.
Do you have a tag or name for them?

I agree Sally.

Might I also suggest that you deadhead the spent blooms. It will "clean it up", and could quite possibly encourage another flush of blooms.

Welcome! to NGA, Jasoncassanova. It would help us to help you, if you would let us know where you are. Fill in your profile with your city/state/country and then it will come up in all your posts. Then we can help you keep your plants growing through the coming seasons, too.

The plants still look quite healthy to me. They look like they are maybe some sort of jasmine? If so they will have bloom cycles, and then growth cycles. They are finished blooming for now, but if you give them a light dose of fertilizer, and some extra water to get them through the hot weather (if it is hot where you are?) they will put on a new flush of growth, and bloom again. The bloom cycles can be every month to 6 weeks, or may get longer between blooms as the weather cools.
