Helenium, should it be still healthy around this time?

I notice the Helenium I gave a friend to plant in spring is now mostly brown. I wonder if it is dead. The aster and bee balm I also gave her are still OK, so I wonder perhaps the Helenium needs more water than the other two plants.

RE: Helenium, should it be still healthy around this time?

This can be different in different varieties. The leaves on some of mine are already nearly 'gone', but none is 100% brown yet. The most important thing is whether you can see the new rosettes for the next year growth at the base of the old stems.
