Yes in process of doing that now........from now through the month I remove all leaves.  I do it for 2 reasons......to remove all traces of poss hell black spot and to enable uncluttered view of flower buds as they emerge.  I also mulch now too

Not cold here folks 

Been busy......cut lots of plants down, potted up several dahlias, salvia patens, cacalifolia, Amistad, uliginosa, etc., split a few cannas, , divided some grasses  and potted them, planted  more wallflowers and stocks, etc.  so, what looked like a full border is now not so full but ready for hellebores and daffs to start doing their thing.

Several potted azaleas and Rhodos showing loads of buds.....spring ,is just around the corner

Best to get it out.  Can you get some help to do it?  Just keep working around it.  Using secateurs to cut those roots that seem immovable.  Pulling, digging, cuttgng, levering ....eventially it will come.

I have never yet let anything beat me...plant, tree, shrub.  Stubborn determination wins in the end.

To plant there without removing it will just create problems.  Then,,when clear.....it will be .....put plenty of goodness back into the soil before replanting.
