Q.

What to do for drying leaves on wax myrtle?

I planted a wax myrtle on east side of a brick wall of my house that gets a lot of sun in the afternoon. Leaves are drying up, limbs getting wilted, and I water it often.

It sounds like it may have a root problem of some kind. I would check the roots for a root rot. This article may be helpful:
