Purchased these for full sun location. Watered 2x daily. They “bleached out” and it seems flowers dried up. I have moved them to a less intense location. Will they revive? Do I need to cut them back?

You can deadhead the spent blooms. I wouldn't cut it back unless it's tall and lanky. Here is more about them:
