It looks like transplant shock. It is normal they color up red and green with sun and time. The leaves will get stiff and tall as it ages. Just water it once a week if ot does not rain that week

These are water needs on my zone. I do not know where you live or zone.

Doubt it's transplant shock, they were planted in Jan., 3 months ago.

Maybe too much water and the mulch too close, holding in too much moisture. They need fast-draining soils and are drought tolerant.
