they tend to die of over winter and re sprout in spring  "or at least mine do" digging out this year and going good riddance ! they tend to be messy imho.

got loads on plot,leaves do go mad and straggy and die back, just pull or chop back. bees love them when in flower. if you move them or divide, mine were a friends divisions they take a year to flower again.
