Hydrangea leaves are sick and dying

We have 3 hydrangeas which have white spots, brown and black areas. The plants are 3 years old, 2 on a South-facing slope, but all 3 are in the sun most if not all day. Summer was brutal like usual and we had an usually long, wet Spring.

If these are a tree hydrangea, then you might chalk this up to a soil infection. A fungicide will be in order here. This article will help: [1]
