What flower lasts only one day?
The hibiscus flower only lasts a day, although many new hybrids have been bred which now last longer, even up to three days.
The super-rare corpse flower, also known as the titan arum plant, is showing signs of blooming. It's extra special because the bloom typically lasts about 24 hours, and it only happens every few years.
Hemerocallis, or day lilies, produce blooms that last for one day. Squash blossoms also last only a day. Perennials, they only bloom for a week or two on average. Some may go longer, but not all season like many annual.
Some species of bamboo plant can grow up to in 24 hours.
Flowers can live for up to five days without water if you wrap the stems in wet paper or cloth. Also, some flowers naturally last longer than others. Hot weather makes flowers die quickly, while cold temperatures sustain the life of the bouquet longer.

Morning Glory and Moonflower
Flowers bloom daily, in succession, all season long. Tissue-thin, trumpet-shaped flowers cover the vines, stretching open as the sun warms the air and twisting closed as it sets.
Each daylily flower lasts just one day. To keep the plants looking their best, snap off the spent flowers, taking care not to disturb nearby buds. As the scapes finish blooming, cut them back to the ground to keep the plants looking neat and prevent them from putting energy into seed production.
Many flowers can bloom on a single scape but each bloom only remains open for a single day. Each day lily plant has numerous scapes and can produce hundreds of blooms in a season. Depending on the variety, the bloom season can last 30 to 40 days, or longer, and is usually from late spring to fall.
What plant survives a few days?
A plant which lives for a few days is called ephemral because of a very short growing season. Such plant are found near desert or in very cold countries e.g., Arabidopsis species have life span of 20-28 days .
Hibiscus blooms only last a day before closing and eventually falling off the plant. Keep the plant tidy by removing the spent blooms. For plants that you overwinter indoors or grow outdoors in a mild climate, prune the shrub back by one-third in late winter or early spring.
