Is it OK to deadhead the spent blooms off of False Spirea deciduous shrubs (Astilbe Chinensis)?

You can cut the spent flowering stems down once the flowers have faded. Cut the stems down to below the foliage level to remove them. This will make your astilibes look neat and attractive. Enjoy your garden!
