Why do my Japanese Anemone's look like this?

Bluerose,I think they are simply too dry.  yes,, they may be vigorous spreaders but in decent conditions.  A thick mulch in future will help.

i would be surprised if they have flowered already and gone over....I would expect them to flower through September

there are a couple of additional problems but anything that is struggling attracts pests and diseases.  Address cultivation...mulching, Feeding and watering...and all should be well next year
