A couple of days after the Korean spice Viburnum was planted, the leaves start turning brown. There are few new leaves starting to grow. What caused it, and is there anything can do to help it?

It may simply be going through some transplant shock from recent planting. It is possible that there are air pockets in the soil that are affecting the roots. I would step firmly on the root ball to help collapse any air pockets. Flood the area with water to help fill them in. Up its watering as well. It may also have a fungus disease, so I would treat the plant with a fungicide.
