Provide supplemental water until plants are displaying visual signs of establishment (that is, they display new growth, good color, remaining vertical) and appear well-rooted (that is, they display resistance to gentle tugging). The planting site should be manipulated as needed to maintain ideal growing conditions for your plant, including removal, mowing, pruning of surrounding plants. Strive to achieve these conditions by maintaining or restoring historical disturbance regimes via prescribed fire, grazing, etc.
