Is this the common wax myrtle or the dwarf variety? It would help my diagnosis of your problem if you could provide additional information on what is happening to the trees. Anything unusual about the leaves, bark, etc.? Any signs of insect infestations? Has the demise followed some cold harsh weather? Tell me about your care of the tree in terms of watering, fertilizing and pruning.

To help continued growth, I would recommend you follow the guidelines in the following articles:
