Vincas are dying, HELP!

I bought some vincas about a month ago and they were doing great, they said to be in full sun and I live in 80-90 degree weather, I have been watering them everyday and they are wilting and losing their flowers. Can someone please tell me what I am doing wrong?

RE: Vincas are dying, HELP!

Sun-tolerant plants aren't until they root into the soil.

Back off on the watering enough that the soil remains moist but not soggy. (Sog kills vinca.)
And rig some temporary shade.
If they were mine, I'd also remove the flowers for a while so that the plants can grow roots.
