Marie Britt Ligularia

I have had Marie Britt Ligularea for 4 years. I moved it 2 times before I moved to the new house moved it three times at the new house in 3 years. Then for the 4th time I moved it last year and it has taken off. I have finally found a sweet spot.
It looked like this October last year. Look at this pic. Do you see the Hakonechloa on the left?

Today it looks like this. I measured it is 3 ft wide and 3 ft tall. It has covered the grass and it is as tall as the bush. I was attempting to do a purple yellow design on each side to make the purple leaves pop. It is taking over the companion plants. I will dig up the grass and move it. I am going to see if the bush will fight for its space for now.

You've moved that plant a lot, but it looks happy now. That's a pretty one. I have a couple that I hope put out that many flowers. They go well with hostas, but the snails and slugs like them too much.

Yes Sandy it was a plant on the move. I have never had a plant that had such a death wish in my garden. If I put it in the sun it was trying to die at one point it was one leaf. If I put it in my shade garden it did grow two leaves. It seemed to be very particular where it wanted to grow.
