    It’s quite a large specimen. Provided you have prepared the planting hole and surrounding soil well it’s most likely a water issue. Leaves droop like that on newly planted shrubs if they are short of water or roots not making contact with the surrounding soil.

    Give it 2-3 bucketful of water directly into the base in the evening or early morning to get the best from the watering & continue to water like that every 3-4 days throughout the summer. Hopefully it recovers soon.

    @Borderline thank you so much for replying. I’ve just watered him so fingers crossed.

    The yellow colour is quite normal, the droopiness is not. Agree with @Borderline
    He calls her the chocolate girl
    Cause he thinks she melts when he touches her
    She knows she's the chocolate girl
    Cause she's broken up and swallowed
    And wrapped in bits of silver
