At first glance I thought it was an hydrangea but I guess you know what you bought!
These look like very ill hydrangea .

If it is a hydrangea it's flowering too early so has been forced. When did you put it in the garden? They prefer some shade. Did you dig over a 2ft square area first or just a hole?
Did you bury it level with the level it was in the pot or have you planted too deeply? Have you watered it well and frequently.
It is a hydrangea K67 👍.
Hi Steve. I'd guess that it's a recently purchased one judging by the size of the blooms. ???
These are often forced into flowering early to put on an enticing show in the shops. If this is the case yours might simply be finished for this year 😞.
The good news is that they will come back at the right time next summer, the buds are just starting to burst on mine.
Keep yours well hydrated while it settles in, and keep the base clear of weeds and stuff where slugs can hide. I think I spy a little slug damage to the lower leaves.
You might have bindweed creeping in near the fence (heart shaped leaves to the left of the pic) ?
You want to get rid, if it is.
Thanks all for your help,you are right it is a hydrangea
yes shop bought and I presume as you say forced to flower
look forward to it next year
Also best not to chop off the dead flowerheads until next spring. They usually do a good job of keeping frost from damaging the flower buds for next year that are just underneath the dead blooms
