They get full sun all day and are watered regularly. Any idea what's going on? Maybe it's just not enough water? Is it a disease? Please help!

Without checking, and you can google this on line, I am not so sure about full sun all day long. Maybe that is too much effectively burning the plants.
You have to keep the moisture up.

Edit after research.
They can take full sun but they do not like the heat. So the google reference I found said that when it gets warm they do better shaded from the strong sun between 10-2pm.
So I would suggest moving them where they get either morning or afternoon sun. The research said that they do well in the shade. Perhaps they will bloom with fewer flowers but they will still bloom.

Thanks so much for the response. The research I did said full sun/partial shade was ok but it sounds and looks like full all day sun is too much. Luckily I have some shadey spots in mind to move them to. Thanks again!
