Hydrangeas grow best when given about 4 hours of morning sunshine but shade from hot afternoon sun. They like moist but well draining soils. It might be that you are overwatering your hydrangea. If the soil remains too wet it can actually suffocate the roots. Try watering thoroughly and then allowing the top half inch of potting soil to dry out before watering again. Hope this helps!
