For the amsonias in which the leaves turn yellow in the fall -- do the leaves fall off afterwards or are they evergreen? (I live in California).

Well, I am in the southeast and as the amsonia go yellow ...the plant eventually dries up... the leaves don't 'fall' off but the entire plant dries up and goes brown. I clean it all up in the fall or leave it to overwinter and then remove... in the spring comes the new growth.

PS - amsonia will pop up a good distance from where you planted it.
