Hard rain last week, beat the living daylights out of the "flowers" on my pink Astilbe's - should I cut off the damaged stems now or wait? Also, will they flower more (better) if I cut now?
Thanks to any experts!

Usually they won't rebloom, so I wouldn't cut off all the blooms unless they just look horrible. If there are only a few damaged ones then cut them back. Hopefully a few will replace it, but I'm not sure.
