This hydrangea was planted a few days ago in a sphagnum/peat moss and native soil mix. We've had a good bit of rain. I'm just wondering if it's gotten too much water or is it just going through "shock" of being planted.

The leaves are getting burned. This could be caused by too much peat or the peat wasn't thouroughly moistened. Or if it was growing in a shady nursery and you planted it in a sunny location, the leaves could be sunburned.

Thanks. I mixed the sphagnum peat moss mixture half and half with the native soil. Now it had been in my house in a window still in the container it was bought in for approximately three weeks due to rain. I thought I'd never get it set out. Do I do anything special or let it get just get over the shock of being in the ground?
