4th panda, cutting it back ruthlessly will generate suckers all over the place as bob said.  Not sure about trying to dig it up if it's been there for few years....I think it will generate suckers too.  If in an area on its own I would spray with super strength  glyphosate.  Watch out for suckers and spray them when seen.  You will have to leave this now until spring

The sentiments expressed here show we are all the same...emotional, sad, regretful and respecful for those no longer with us.

I meant only that if you could dig deeper, break up the soil a little deeper, you could then dig in some manure, etc  into that layer.  If possible I think that would be preferable to bringing in top soil 

Clearly you are not afraid of hard work so whatever you do I'm sure it will work just fine

Verbena bonariensis. Can it be moved?

I always dig up my flowered plants and chuck them out.  But, that's because I have plenty of seedlings that have grown.  Seedlings about 3 to 9" high can be carefully potted up.  I pInch them back and leave them outside but in cold areas you can take them inside a GH.  

Serious! Really
