It will take your camellia a little bit longer to adjust to its new place in the garden so don't despair. Camellias are rather slow growing but once the roots become established you should see some new growth. I'd go ahead and prune off the brown leaves. They aren't helping the plant and I know they look unattractive. Pruning encourages new growth so cutting it back a bit should result in some healthy growth. Just be patient with your plant and I think it will recover. Enjoy your garden!
