Unfortunately, our group cannot answer your question because of your location outside of Maryland. Please contact your local Cooperative Extension office for assistance. A good way to find your local office is to search for ‘cooperative extension’ plus your county name.
(Until you can reach your local office, we can say that this plant looks like a Bromeliad, in which case this flower dieback is perfectly normal and the plant may soon begin "pupping," producing baby plants around its base.)
