Hydrangea Care Concern

I have several hydrangea plants. Two are the same and are in pots outdoors. The one is doing fine. The other one’s leaves were all curled and wet-like (gooey). Then I have three that are planted in the ground. Those too have the curled leaves and I don’t think they look normal. Is there a bug that is eating at it (can’t see anything) or some other disease?

I would recommend treating the plants with neem oil. This will treat both the pest issue as well as any fungal probelms. These articles will help:
