The sticky-up centre suggests rudbeckia to me
Tough as old boots, get them out there
Could be a mullein, I've had salvias that look like that though.
Anything could happen Steve
Don't try it on conifers though. They don't regrow.
That'll be OK then, a good haircut does it no end of good.

They were completely smothered in hedge bindweed and when I removed it everything was wet and yucky. Now they've dried they look like yours.
Oh yes, I'll do that tomorrow, if I remember
