What's wrong with my Spirea?

Our neon flash spirea got this burnt at the edge of its leaves. And the burnt area are getting crisp. Do you know what might have caused this symptom? Is it some sort of disease or it's just simply dying? Any chance of over/under water? or the exposure to the sun? We kept it our semi-shade area during the past 2 weeks though. Now I moved it to the area with more sun exposure (although not sure whether it is the way to go.)

We bought it from a home improvement center only 2 weeks ago and haven't got round to put it in the ground just yet. Appreciate your suggestion/remedy.

From here and with paucity of information, looks like getting cooked in the pot. BigBox stock generally marginal in the first place and cooking stock after purchase rarely positive. Fortunately most consumer BigBoxes have a generous, no-questions-asked return policy.

Dan is likely right. If a potted plant gets too dry one time and has serious wilt, it can be watered and return somewhat, but looks just like yours. Get that sucker planted, watered and mulched! (Or, returned if allowed, THEN planted, watered and mulched!)
