Sounds like transplant stress - typical for most any shrub or tree when they are transplanted in the spring or summer months. As soon as the roots re-establish themselves the shrubs will perk up and you'll see new growth. This can take a few weeks to a few months, depending upon the plant. Right now the best thing to do is to water deeply once each week to help the roots establish themselves. By mid-summer they should look happy and healthy in their new homes.

Best wishes with your plants!
