Please diagnose my Hydrangea

Hi all, 

In the past month, one of my relatively young hydrangeas (approx.3-4 months old) has gone downhill very fast. Black rimmed leaves that are now turning yellow. 

Is this a mineral deficiency or a case of over-watering due to the weather? 

Thanks, 
James

    When you say 3 or 4 months old, do you mean you planted it 3 or 4 moths ago?
    It looks big if it's a 3 month old plant.
    It could be a bit droopy as it may have grown quite quickly after being planted - the stems are very fine. Otherwise, it's probably fine.
    Can you offer more info about the soil and if you've been feeding it etc? They don't really need much other than water.

    What type of hydrangea is that?

    I wondered about that too @Lyn. It didn't look familiar.

    It looks more like Physalis than a hydrangea.

    It does @amancalledgeorge

    Perhaps the OP could come back with more info  :)

    Could have been a nursery mix up.

    It’s not one of the hydrangeas that I know  :/

    It would be interesting to see the others. The OP mentioned it was 'one of' his hydrangeas.
    I have to say - I thought it looked a bit 'off', but I took @jpilarge at his word that it was a hydrangea. It's why I asked about the 3 or 4 month thing though   :)
