Transplanting Mullein

I have a Great Mullein growing in my flowerbed, in a place where I do not want it. I think it would be quite showy in a different location. Do you think if I should try to save it?

This plant is considered a wildflower by some and a weed by others. Mulleins prefer full sun and well-drained soils. This one is biennial producing a rosette of leaves (no flowers) the first season. It stretches over 5 feet tall, the next year, producing a long yellow flowering spike. The original plant dies at the end of the second season. So wait and move the seedlings next season to a more desirable location. Weed out wayward seedlings or excess plants to keep them in line.
