<<leave the bloomstalk and any foliage intact,>>
The nutritional pathways in the bloom stalk appears to be one way?  It is designed to supply nutrition for the blooms and supporting foliage, pod when produced.  It's doubtful it collects nutrients for storage in the rhizome?? 
Any foliage or fans at the base of the stalk might still be collecting as it is their job.  If the rhizome has no foliage at the base of the stalk it is probably bald??  But only time will tell. 
Some cultivars traditionally wait until really late in the summer to send up new increase and foliage.  
If you don't cross them, you can't  plant them!
