You can pull off those dead leaves....pull downwards, lowest first and go around the trunk like this removing the next lowest and so on.
I would cut off the old flower head.
Cordylines have an unusual trunk and root system. Dig as deep a hole as you can then lift. Replant asap.
They enjoy poor soil and good light

I dont think the ads are really the issue. Last weekend the problem was exactly the same only to be fixed on Mon am so assume it will be the same this time

Valerie, so they are planted out in the garden ?
Last year same stage you are with them....I potted them on and overwintered them in gh. Planted out this spring.
For me they will be fine outdoors but is it cold where you are? Is soil heavy?
How many plants do you have? I assume they are dotted about?
If they are small I would still pot them up, remove flower stems and grow with a view to have well developed plants to put out next spring.
However, if your soil is free draining and your winters not too bad you should be ok

Already mentioned astilbes. There are some superb varieties now......if you get those with new spring red or copper foliage,,like Vesuvius, Fanal, etc., you will get colour from early spring right up to late August.
Astrantias..tall white like jumble hole or superstar will give you flowers all summer.
Add a tall plant like kmiphofia, aconitum, veronicastrum or an actea and you have a nice bed

Pot it up Juniper. Dont put it in too big a pot...just enough to accommodate it. Water it and put it somewhere warm.

I planted a white mophead for a friend a couple years back, Fairy. Right now it looks stunning. Perfect spot....shady, moist and cool.
I prefer the paniculatas but if I can create a shady cool spot Hydrangea Annabel will be planted
Check out Kyushu is a charming shrub.
