it will all turn brown and die, no further use for it. Cut it all off

I might try some hardwood when the leaves drop. It's worth a try.

they'll die back soon for the winter. You can cut off the dead leaves and more will grow in spring.

They are relatively moisture loving compared to bearded iris, are they too dry/

Looks more like italicum in that photo H-C

Not much difference Catherine. You'd have a hard job eliminating them. If you let them mature you get some lovely red berries in late summer, Don't eat them but the voles do

I might have a go. Cuttings are my weak spot (one of them anyway)

Can I expect suckers? Nothing yet and it's been there a few years now.  I'll have to try some cuttings I think. Hardwood do you reckon?

re the Chimonanthus, my garden is quite exposed but it's not in the most exposed part. I waited nearly 20 years from seed for the first flowers. It's having a good year, all the early rain I think

nothing upsets a bamboo does it?

An in situ pic and an indication of size would be useful but I think this is an Arum. 

Arum maculatum or Arum italicum are most likely but it looks too 'marked' for the former and not enough for the latter

There are some similarities between the berries especially. It's the leaves that make me think cornus. See what others think

I think it's a Cornus
