Can anyone tell me what plant this is and why the center is not growing back after being cut back after winter?

It looks like Valerian. Centrathus rubra. As to why it's doing that, I don't know. I had one do that a couple of years ago so I removed it. Seedlings have grown in its place.

Oh, I did not notice that at a glance, just offering link to database entry because it has a nice collection of pics.

No worries. I get so excited when I know an answer, I forget my spelling skills. Hilarious!
