If you want to keep them I recommend cutting them down and starting over. I don't think they will recover soon enough to bloom. They do get a leaf spot fungus and once infected there is not treatment. Fungicides are preventative not curative. A sample can be sent to the plant disease clinic for a diagnosis.

Thank you, Evelyn. I may just try something else where they are planted. Not sure what right now. My obedient plants in my back yard garden are fine, but all of them in the front have the fungus.
