To be fair, my hakonechloa was rather swamped by some very exuberant hostas revelling in the long, cool, wet spring that lasted till late July.
The same bed had lily of the valley in the shadier end that only got sun after 3pm between the equinoxes. It was well-behaved and not a thug but only once flowered in time for May day which sees people in Belgium giving sprigs to loved ones.
I do think it's important when giving advice or experiences to cite your conditions as what works in balmy southern Cornwall clearly will be different in exposed Northumbria or even sheltered Scotland or Wales.
