Both plants have beautiful full, healthy looking blooms on them (and buds fixing to bloom) \, but the leaves sometimes are crunchy and brown and have to be removed or, recently, have been looking like the picture. Only one of my plants are droopy like this, but both of them get the crunchy brown leaves. I know that Hydrangeas are moody and like water; so I keep an eye on them. But what is causing this droop problem? They were planted this year. I am totally new to this so any advice will help me. Thank you kindly.
