Answer: Rather than dying, it is more likely they are just finished blooming. Perennial salvias, as with most perennials, bloom for only a short period at a time. The blooms will turn pale and dry out as they fade. These faded blooms should be removed from the plants to help them direct their energy toward rooting and becoming established in the garden rather than toward seed production. It also makes the garden look tidier.
