Co-existence of Yellow Archangel & Other Ground Covers & Hostas

In answer to another question about ground covers, someone mentioned "dreaded Yellow Archangel" and that it would take over anything. Is this true? I have put it in a bare area in the back of my yard but it is creeping toward an area with hostas. Will the hostas be able to stand up to it or should I control it before it gets there?
Also what about Chameleon Plant and Sweet Woodruff?. I also have some of each of these in other beds but also growing around Hostas.
I al trying to make my largish yard a little easier to maintain and planted these ground covers in order to keep out the weeds.

RE: Co-existence of Yellow Archangel & Other Ground Covers & Hos

The only place that I have found Yellow Archangel(Lamiastrum galeobdelon)to behave itself is in a bed around a dry, dry, driveway. This area is never watered, and the plant does a great job keeping out the weeds. The bed is containted between the stone driveway and railroad timbers.
