|It isn't unusual for transplanted perennials to go through a stressful period until they re-establish their root systems. Your plant will probably look puny for 2-3 weeks but it will recover and will perk up. When you see new growth you can prune away any dead or damaged plant parts. Until that time just water it deeply every 3-4 days and give it a few weeks to settle into its new home.
