Azaleas, especially the ones in pots, need to be in the shade all day through the summer months. Spring and fall they might tolerate some direct sun but not at this time of year.

Hot weather will dessicate the leaves and if it's windy that will happen faster.

When you put it into the bigger pot, did you break up the root ball from the old pot somewhat?

Azaleas here do fine with daily heavy rain in the 1 to 2in range, (when it rains here, it really comes down like a fire hose) as long as there is good drainage. So that should not be what is making it wilt. They love heat and humidity.

Try misting the leaves with the hose whenever you walk by it for a while and see if that perks it up.

Can you post a picture showing the plant and its pot so that we can see the size of the pot? Also, what kind of potting soil is the plant growing in - the container of some kind behind it in the first picture looks to have some very coarse material in it, or is that not for plants?

Are you still watering the plant even when it rains?
