Will it ever come back to full growth?

It can. The only thing that you can do from here is wait. Sometimes adding a product called B1 from ThriveAlive will help with recovery, but this is not always a sure bet.

From here, just don't do anything drastic like feed it or overwater. It needs to be left alone but only kept slightly moist between drying out thoroughly. This hydrangea needs to be grown is a good amount of shade, and will not tolerate full sun.

Thank you for your answer,Bushdoctor. Can't believe I did exactly the wrong thing. I usually research every new plant but not this time.I will hold back from meddling with it further!
