wilting leaves

I have four hydrangeas approx. 5 years old this year I cut them back they came out looking healthy and strong then we got alot of rain still looked good . All of a sudden the leaves on three started wilting one is really bad the one next to it looks perfect still down the row further two are starting to wilt. I live in south Georgia but these have always done well with minimal care.HELP!!!

Pure wilt is probably just watering needs (MORE PLEASE!), but if you are getting browning as well it could be fungal; try foliar feeding with fish emulsion. We have had good luck with salmon emulsion on a lot of different fungii this season...
