So, I stopped at our favorite nursery. The gal said she chops her asters down to about 2" from the ground, chopping all that brown stuff off.
They will grow back nice and healthy and bloom in the fall nice and luscious. But ya have to do it now. (at least for our zone)
Not sure I'm going to go that drastic...maybe by half.
Glad you found an answer. I haven't ever been able to get any to grow. They die in a hurry for me...not just brown leaves at the bottom...the whole thing dies!

water them more. Or maybe check the soils pH.
