They are a nice addition to the garden but most of the sun is during the heat of the day...

I have the same issue. I lost a tree, and that opened up a more sun to one of my hydrangeas. I already had it on a drip irrigation system that watered it every other day, but on hot days it needs to be watered every day or else it looks droopy. You can see it perk up within hours of watering, except on the hottest of days, where it may not perk up until late at night.
