Two weeks ago, we planted four wisterias along a wall that's located in the NE end of our property. They looked well for the first ten or so days, but today I noticed that two of them show wilted yellowish leaves. I've been very good with the watering (live in the desert) and when you step around the soil they are planted in, it feels soft (wet) so I do not understand what could be happening. Could it be too much water? I'm not savvy at all when it comes to gardening, but I'm really trying. Any ideas?

It sounds like transplant shock. It can happen sometimes to plants. This article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/environmental/learn-how-to-avoid-and-repair-transplant-shock-in-plants.htm As for the soft soil, there may be a few air pockets in the soil contributing to the shock. Step firmly around the plants to collapse any air pockets and flood the area with water to help fill them in.
