Bit of heat and Sun making plants wilt!

Well it looks like the nicer weather is finally here! However I got home to find a few of my plants had wilted a bit. The soil is moist and I also tested this with one of them things you push into the ground and it tells you how moist it is. It too said the soil is most.
So will I need to water the plants or should I resist the temptation? The plants that wilted are Lupins, Sedum Autumn Joy and Shasta Dasies.
Well the plants are getting quite big now to be honest. But when I planted them which would have been at the beginning of March, I did water them well and the soil feels moist around the base. But they still wilted? I thought sedum were very drought resistant so for them to wilt a bit too surely isn't right?
I will do Shall I do that with the lupins and shasta daisies too?
I find all that lush growth wilts when the sun gets hot for the first time, but it soon gets used to it

To be honest, with perrenials, I water them well every week once the weather warms up. A good watering routine will promote stronger roots to your plants. I rarely loose a plant due to lack of water
