It sounds as though your new knockout roses are just going through a little transplant shock. They should recover in a week or so, as soon as the roots become established in their new homes. Knockout roses are quite hardy and will adjust soon. If some of the leaves or stems die back you can safely cut them off the plant. Wait until you see new growth before cutting them back. Water your new plants regularly but don't allow the soil to remain soggy wet. They'll perk up soon. Enjoy!
