If you are referring to the petals, then these will naturally fall off after while. If you are referring to the whole bloom falling off, then I would start looking at a possible phosphorus and potassium deficiency. If you fertilize regularly, then the pH could simply be thrown off. You can fix this by adding dolomitic lime to the of the soil.
