Answer: Most plants go through an adjustment period after being transplanted. This can include wilting, dropping or yellowing leaves, and dropping blossoms. The exposure is probably different that it was used to, and sometimes roots can be damaged during the process of being moved from one place to another. Your hydrangea should be happy growing in a container, as long as there are adequate drainage holes so the growing medium doesn't stay soggy after watering. Morning sunshine is fine your your plant. Give your new hydrangea regular water (allow the soil to barely dry out before watering again) and be sure to water thoroughly when you do water, making sure all the soil is saturated and water runs freely from the drainage holes. I suspect your plant is just going through a period of stress. Give it a little more time and it should perk up for you.
