These bushes have been in pots. They bloomed every year. I planted them, and they look like they are dead but have new growth on them

They are definitely very stressed. If you planted them, recently, in the heat then stress is likely. They will struggle to take to their spot. Watering is key after this point, though. You want to let the soil dry out several inches between waterings, but do not leave it wet or totally dry.


The only thing that you can do from here is to monitor their health and adjust accordingly.
