Chris, I'm not a 'proper biologist' but it's pretty obvious that it's a perfectly normal term in botany as well as in zoology, which is probably the usage you were aware of.

They're not in full sun are they?  Most hydrangeas are much happier in shade and the recent temperatures will have scorched them.

That being said, if one of them was looking poorly from the beginning, it might be past it now

The scent of privet flowers always takes me back to a holiday in Brittany where the privet hedges were high and full of flowers and buzzing insects - I know some people loathe the smell, but I love it

Nowadays you can buy 'sleepers' which have never been near a railway and haven't been impregnated with creosote/tar etc like the old-style railway sleepers -  you can buy them pressure treated or not. 

Maybe that's what the OP is talking about.
