can I plant astilbe, bleeding heart roots now? I bought them at discount 3 months ago and the roots are dried out.

I hope you can save your plants! Dried out roots are not a good sign. Try soaking them in water for a few hours and then planting them. I don't think they will grow this fall or winter, especially if the soil is cold, but if there's any life left in them, they should sprout in the spring. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!
