I think a lot of that family can cause a problem to some extent, celery rash can be quite nasty. 

Take care, don't panic is my motto.

But I really wondered which plant the OP is talking about

There will be self seeding, maybe not quite as Pam's Choice but still nice. 

Sometimes a foxglove will go on for another year but I never feel they're as good. Others may have better results from this. 

If you want more alliums between, I'd pull the foxgloves up as soon as they've seed and start afresh

Are we talking about the native hogweed here or the alien giant hogweed?

Can anyone help me identify this plant and what is wrong with it?

Foxgloves (the usual Digitalis purpurea varieties) are generally considered biennial and once they've flowered they die. You might get the odd one last another year but rarely very good.

Let them seed for future years.
