I live in Munich, Germany, and have had my hydrangea for several years. It happily moved from the UK (South East) to Munich and survived two winters and a summer. However, this year I decided to move its position on my south-east-facing balcony into a more shaded area - last year it got a bit sunburnt (new to me!). It used to see no morning sun, but a lot of midday to afternoon sun.
Since moving it into the 'shade' it sees morning light for a few hours, and no afternoon light. In the last week almost 50% of the leaves have wilted and become floppy. They are discoloured a darker green, and won't hold their shape.
How do I fix this, and why did it happen?
