What plant this is and is it damaged?

Re: What plant this is and is it damaged?

No worries @Newgreenthumb 
Just trim them off as far down as is practical. They are a pretty forgiving plants and any stems left will just breakdown & disappear anyway.
In future it's best to get rid of those pods as soon as they start appearing.

If a plant goes to seed it will often see that it is 'mission accomplished', because setting seed is the whole reason it puts out flowers, so it can reduce its flower production that season and then the process of producing seed consumes a lot of energy so it can reduce flowering into the next season too.

Re: What plant this is and is it damaged?

@Adam_W  Thank you very much for this. I will get onto it 😁

 

May I ask, I had the same plants along the wall and a gardener ‘trimmed’ them and said they should all start to regrow but they haven’t. He did say it can take time but I fear they are dead now. 
is there anything that can be done to these? I m attaching a photo. 

Thank you  again.
