I have a very big Dusty Miller plant at my mailbox planter bed. It has beautiful yellow flowers and is getting really big. Is there a way I could move it to a different area of the yard without damaging or hurting it? It is just getting too large for the size of the bed, and I want to put some summer annuals there.

You can actually dig up the entire clump and divide it into two or more sections, depending on its size, OR just move the large clump somewhere else in the landscape. Be sure to make the new planting hole large enough to accommodate the plant and give it plenty of water while it re-establishes its roots.
