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?

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