Quite often newly acquired plants need a period of adjustment before they will perform well in a landscape. I suspect that your new plants were protected from direct sunshine while they were being transported to the garden center and also while they were in the garden center. Putting your new plants in an area that received direct sunshine can also stress them. Give your plants another few weeks to adjust and you should see some healthy new growth. When that happens, prune off the old damaged plant parts. Best wishes with your new plants!
