I just planted hydrangeas this weekend. We had a heavy rainstorm last night and the flowers are now flopped over and droopy. Any suggestions on how to put more life into the flowers and keep this from happening again?

That WAS some heavy rain.  This is a common problem with hydrangeas and peonies.  There’s not much that can be done other that providing support for the branches with the metal stakes with rings at the top to hold the stem upright.  You should feed it every spring with Espoma Flower-Tone and that can make it as sturdy as possible but, when we get a pounding 3″ of rain in a couple of hours, your hydrangeas are going to flop until they dry out.
