What kind of bushes are these?

Moved into new house. There are 4 of these enormous bushes with purple flowers on them. Can someone please identify them for me so I can figure out how to take care of them? Thanks!

You might want to do some research on this plant. Purple loosestrife is considered a primary invasive species across much of North America and even cultivated forms are discouraged (they are no longer considered sterile).

Lots of other great flowering plants could be suggested for replacement.
