Having them together too soon didn't work out well. You could start all over, but it sounds like you've given up on her already.

But if you don't follow some good introduction guidelines, it could happen again.

I would be shutting the Siamese away before opening the door where the other cat is so if she bolts the Siamese is safely in his own space.

For many cats a week is not long enough, as suggested keep them apart and re-do the intro

I would think 1 week is much much to short of time to introduce cats. My only introduction was about 3 months . Of course I didn't press it by daily meetings. The introduction was also a black cat about 8 months old that showed up at my doorstep on a cold winter night.
Resident cat is very laidback and most agression came from the new one.
I had a safe room set up. The first thing I did was bring the new cat out, holding him, and let the older cat see her. The older cat was then well aware of the new cat.
When Colonel, the older cat, was outside or asleep upstairs. I would close the door to the up stairs a let Onyx, the new cat, out to have free roam of the house. I would also give her lots of cuddles before putting her back in the saferoom. I would then go and get Colonel and give him cuddles while Onyx's scent was still all over me.

We kept this up for a while. We did have some escapes where fur flew. Mostly Onyx was the aggressor. Would of thought that she would of learned from a few good thumpings from Colonel, but she didn't.

I then put Onyx in a large dog cage and left them seperate it out between the bars. Didn't work real good. Colonel would apraoch the cage and Onyx would go into Hissing fits.

I then purchased Rescue Remendy and started putting it in both cat's water. Stopped using on Colonel after a week. He was not having as much of a problem accepting Onyx as Onyx was accepting him.

I would rub a few drops of the remendy between Onyx's ears before I started any introductions. It took about 2 weeks, but the big break through came when they both were sitting face to face each taking turns swatting at the Da Bird daggled between them.
Now they are best of buds. Eat out of the same dish and chase eachother around the room.

It takes time and each cat is different. Please take your time and good luck

Definitely much easier to dump the one you got and get a new one than to go through all the trouble and hassle of integrating this unfriendly and lesser cat into the household.

That is what I would do. I wouldn't just lock the older cat in the patio though, if it was not use to being there. If older cat is not use to being in the patio, I would move her feeding station there. Let new kitty have access to the house at feeding time. This will move its scent around.
I noticed that you are in AZ, so the patio would still be a good sunning spot for the older cat.

Oh as a side note. My older cat, I beleive has a lot of Siamese in him.

its not like they jump on each other, the new female acts like boss, putting her paw up like she is going to swat the older cat...and after about 20 close meetings, the older siamese get ticked, and they are rolling on the ground, paws flying...its strange, they want to be in the same room...i got to fight to keep the new one out of the living room with the older cat
