Are my Astilbe dead? - Knowledgebase Question

2 of my Astilbe have dropped all their leaves. Are they dead? Or will they come back next Spring. My other 2 are starting to drop their leaves too, even though they are still blooming. They are in the shade and are kept moist.

Astilbes naturally lose their foliage at the end of the growing season, but new leaves and flower stems will appear next spring. Wait until the foliage is completely dead, then cut it away to keep your landscape looking neat and tidy.
