too much sun for end less summer hydranges?
I am watering my hydranges several times a day. It is about 2 years old and it is flowering this year. It get morning sun to about noon. During the morning it gets limp and the flowers start to droop every morning even after watering. Then they perk up in the afternoon. It just requires so much watering and attention. Will it get better when it becomes more mature?

Hi,

Thanks for writing. It's not uncommon for some plants, such as hydrangeas to wilt in hot sun. You may find that they wilt even when the soil is moist --- what happens is that their roots can't absorb moisture fast enough. If the plants recover in the afternoon, it's probably not harming them and they should be fine. Otherwise, you might move them to a spot where they get a little more protection from the sun.
