Is this a marsh marigold?

On the bright side - I love its sunny smiling faces, and it dies down after flowering and you won't know you've got it until the sun comes out again next spring

I planted some at the foot of a north-facing wall  - they were great for about 8 months, but didn't survive the very wet/cold/snowy winter a couple of years ago.

What should I do with my Flump-Monster?

I think it's beautiful as it is  

One of the wonderful characteristics of some magnolias is the asymmetry of their growth - that's why they look so wonderful in Japanese gardens and paintings where asymmetry is prized. 

If you cut it back you run the danger of it looking like a frilly loo brush.

I'd enjoy it as it is and accentuate the asymmetry and the Japanese style of the garden - perfect with the architecture of your house
