Sunburned. Either move it to a shadier spot or provide shade on the south and west sides of the plant.
If you have containers, move them to a shadier spot if you can. For shrubs and perennials, you should wait until fall to transplant.

Besides watering regularly, what else can you do?
Drip irrigation lines, usually under the mulch, provide much-needed water during heat waves
To retain moisture and save water, use mulch
One last note: Lawns are difficult to maintain in the high summer heat. Lawns need longer, slower watering. This helps to create healthy root systems. Plus, avoid the use of pellet-type fertilizers. This could cause chemical burning. Last, but not least, set the mower higher. Give the lawn a chance to "shade" itself.
