Does this look ok?

Another wee question folks. Would you say this plant (Scabiosa 'caucasica goldingensis') looks ok or a little bit droopy? I'm worried that I'm over watering the perennials that I planted last week.
A glow worm's never glum
Cos how can you be grumpy
When the sun shines out your bum!
I’ve got scabious in full sun and full shade, they’ll grow anywhere once they get started and will self seed.
I like the idea of it self seeding and I really don't want to give up on it, I like the fact it has a scabby sounding name but is quite pretty.
I'm sure I put it in the right spot, it's been scorching hot up here for around 3 weeks though (plants been in one), I mean, that's like six years worth of Scottish summers the ground has had in less than a month!
Between the 8 plants i put in (all perennials, 4 geraniums) I've been sharing out about three 10L watering cans full at night time and a wee sharpener in the morning if it looked a bit dry. Is that too much? It did say to keep 'em well watered for the first year.
The rest look pretty ok, it's just today I noticed this one was looking a bit sad.
Getting them acclimatised for our normal weather?
