the flower is long lived , several weeks. then the seed pods if left are rather nice too. it is a perennial and will come back year on year. getting bigger all the time. They can become a bit of a thug in time mind. I have a large clump that i have tried to thin out with a little success this spring.

The plant will come up again next year without any help, but beware, it spreads like mad and you might have more plant than you want!
