We moved and I wanted to bring my 3 weigalas with me so I transplanted them in May and gave them good soil and a good watering and they are getting full sun but 2 of them look awful and droopy-will they be okay?

New transplants are going to struggle. Even with your best effort, roots are destroyed and often these are the very small feeder roots. Plants need to focus on their root system before they resume top growth after transplanting. Give them a half-strength fertilization and keep them watered weekly until you see new growth. On very hot days, give them some shade with a sheet or a leaf bag placed over 2 sticks. The damaged roots are not able to replace moisture as fast as the leaves are losing them.
