Planting hydrangeas - Knowledgebase Question

I recently bought two Twist and Shout Hydrangeas and moved them from the store container into planters. I watered them throughly after planting them and now the leaves are drooping and it doesn't look full like it did before I transplanted them. They are on a patio that gets the evening sun. What did I do wrong?

Sounds like a little transplant shock so I think your plants will perk up soon. Wilting can also be caused by hot afternoon sun. Usually the plants droop in the afternoon but recover by the next morning. Try moving your plants to a spot where they get morning sun but protection from hot afternoon sunshine. I think that will solve the problem. Good luck with your new hydrangeas!
