Did you say Lucifer was restrained Verdun? Mine move themselves where they want to be and multiply faster than I can deal with! There are few friends that haven't been given a clump. But they are stunning in flower. There are some delightful smaller varieties though which don't threaten to overrun the garden, like Emily Mackensie and Mistral.
The old orange ones stop flowering if they are congested but shouldn't be too difficult to lift and remove - they are not deep rooted, just persistant.
Sounds like a job for the scouts in bob-a-job week Joyce! Best of luck.
