I just planted this Costco hydrangea and it's dying already. I planted it with topsoil and a little bit of plant food and water it every other day. The spot I planted it gets afternoon sun, but I'm outside of Seattle so the temperatures are rarely even in the 80s. It's been pretty sunny the last few weeks, is it just too much sun? Or is there something wrong with my soil/ water?

Becky Welcome! what is the green circular object around the plant!
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.

It's the brace(?) that came on the plant when I got it. ☺️

Are the leaves and flowers in the center of the plant also burned?
