Is this plant a biennial or perennial? I thought it was a biennial and was trying to collect seed from it but noticed fresh leaf growth at the base. Will it grow again next spring?

    They can be biennial, or short lived perennials.

    OK thanks folks. These I have are plants I believe you sent me last year Hollie, they flowered beautifully around June image  So treat them as you would aquilegias say?

    The original plant in this garden has been here for five years - it grows, it spreads and it seeds. 

    I cut it back to about 8" tall when it stops flowering.  I put the bits I cut off into the compost bin and a year later I get seedlings wherever I spread the compost - especially in the veg patch.
