Are my new azaleas and rhododendrons dying already? (pics)

13 years ago

We added some azaleas and rhododendrons to our garden bed a few weeks ago and it appears they may be dying already. I did a soil test and we have neutral soil. I read that these types of flowers like acidic soil so I will be rototilling in some sphagnum peat moss. I'll also admit I was not watering them on a daily basis, perhaps that is part of the problem? Is it bad to water from above? I usually spray them with the hose and the leaves and flowers probably get wet.

The rhododendron is a nova zembla. Not sure of the azalea variety.

These plants were not cheap and I don't want them to die already...please help.
