    Your plant may have either received too much water or not enough. Your Hydrangea may have suffered some root rot or die off of roots.
    When this happens the plant cannot take up moisture.

    Dig down into the soil to check how much moisture is in the soil.

    I don't see any evidence of disease on the leaves such as Grey Mold.
