My Garden Flower

I live in the south of England.

This flower grows in my garden, the flower 6-8inches diameter comes out late September and each flower lasts only one day.

The plant dies back to the ground each year and by September the plant grows 6 to 8ft.

Can anyone let me know what it is and how I should look after it.
