Leaves Brown After Transplanting Weeping Cherry Tree?

I had a healthy 2 yr old dwarf weeping cherry tree that I transplanted to the front of my yard that gets plenty of sun. It was out of the ground less then 1/2 hour before replanting. I noticed it started wilting immediately. I planted it with plenty of room for the rootball, a little bonemeal, and watered and mulched it. Within a day the wilted leaves turned brown. Since it was healthy, is this stress and shock, not disease? It's been 2 weeks and nothing has changed. It's fall now, would the leaves come back after winter?

I would have waited until the tree became dormant and then transplanted it. It does seems like it did go into shock sometimes it doesn't take much. All you can do is be patient and wait until spring. Chances are good that it will green out in the Spring.
