No, they have little tiny round leaves. You could have contaminated soil.
I found this link that has a seedling image.

It would be wonderful if every plant or tree we every planted was successful, but sometimes that is not the case.
Starting with well cared for nursery stock helps and then mother nature plays a very large part.

Light, sandy soil is preferred for this shrub. Well draining soil is very important. Watering new planting is very important in the first few weeks and then you can generally taper off.

Most reputable garden centers offer a guarantee or replacement of plants that perish in the first year of planting.

Here is a link to refresh you on the care requirements.
