Are we talking about the shrub or the annual?-in a container or in the ground?

The shrub in a container

I think you may have answered your own question-watered well could be translated as over-watered-is there sufficient drainage?-if the leaves showed signs of wilting but the compost is damp adding more water compounds the problem

I would carefully extract it from the container and inspect the roots-it may be saturated or it could be the dreaded vine weevil attack.

Could you come back and tell us what you see?
