Why do they look burnt after planted in ground?
Plants are generally pampered at nurseries with daily watering and just the right amount of sunlight. Then, they come home to the garden and show stress with crispy foliage. Hot afternoon sun will make the conditions worse and the plant will let you know. Extra watering as your new plant gets settled into the garden will help. And, mulch at the base will keep the roots cool on hot days and warm in the winter.
