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.
