I looked this up and found its a deciduous perennial is that right Andrew?

Well the top growth looks to tatty by the end of the winter, I always cut it down. If it kees the top growth through the winter, it will carry strange maroon flowers - I've seen these in South Africa (its native home) but they are not attractive. As a foliage plant, it's outstanding
