as long as you don't get them muddled with the onions you'll be OK

why so expensive?

They're  F1 hybrids.  You pay for that, the cross needs to be repeated every year.

They won't seed true. There will be people on ebay selling seed saved from Sungold tomatoes,  they won't be Sungold

en masse describes them well 

It's a good time of year for uprooting them, the tops stay attached to the corm better than they do later on.

Cephalaria gigantea woody at base?

Getting very tall but not flowering is interesting. 

I wouldn't chop until you know what you've got

I think we need a photo CraighB.

Lots of perennials will make new growth up the stem if you don't cut them back, they make growth from the base if you do cut them.

I don't know the species forms well enough to ID, the seedling is much broader in leaf than the variegated one in the photo. The green versions always look (and are) more robust. Still looks too much like C. pendula to me

I like Carex pendula, in my 2 acre wildlife haven it's lovely. In a normal garden it isn't
