How much sun can they take?

I thought someone on here would be able to tell me the right answer about this. I got two hydrangea a pink one and a purple/white one. My backyard is full sun almost all day long. A few hours in the morning it is shade. They looked great when they were inside but ever since I have planted them they look terrible. They look dead to me. I keep watering them and the pink one did perk back up a bit. Should I move them where it is mostly shade?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Yes, afternoon sun in Tennessee is too strong for them. They would prefer morning sun, afternoon shade.
