Blaue Hexe

We noticed this evening that our Abies Procera Blaue Hexe looks very sad.  Please can anybody suggest what the problem might be.
It is in a pot against a west facing fence and has been watered regularly.  Up to a couple of days ago, it looked healthy, but now it looks burnt.

Thanks.

    Possibly due to watering in bright sunshine,  the other thing maybe that it is waterlogged. 
    Is the pot raised off the ground, using "pot feet" ?

    Yes, the pot is raised on feet.

    It is only ever watered in the evening when the sun is low sky/set.

    Hopefully someone else can come up with the answer.

    Anni,
    We decided to cut our losses and replace the Blaue Hexe.  When I took it out of the pot, it was clear that we had used the wrong compost and it was water-logged.  I have now repotted it in a free draining ericaceous compost and we will see how it gets on.

    Thanks again.
