My perennial plants-monarda, coneflower, and liatrus-are turning brown and drying up. The plants appear to be dying but are still flowering. What is wrong with the plants?

Based on your description it is difficult to make a guess, but it is possible they are suffering from mildew or some other fungal infection. You might want to take a sample to your County Extension (799-2233) for a more definite diagnosis and suggested remedies. I'm sorry I can't be more helpful.
