No, its root system may have been disturbed too much and it could now be concentrating on growing more roots instead of flowering. Water & mulch well and let it become used to the new place and get established. Keep weeds away. Be careful fertilizing as we are getting close to your average date of first frost (last week in November to 1st week in December)... apply slow release fertilizers about three months prior to that date, which would be the last week in August or thereabouts.
