Is my astilbe spreading?

I planted a baby Younique Salmon Astilbe 2 months ago, it was just a twig looking thing. It’s my first time with astilbe. It gets direct western sunlight for at least 8hrs and is in compost/leaf mulch-amended clay. I didn’t expect it to do much as I have seldom watered it, no fertilizer. I wasn’t planning on keeping it there because I thought it was too much sun. There is another YS astilbe from the same supplier 3 ft away in shade that has barely even grown and these things aren’t surrounding it. Are these just weeds growing around that coincidentally look like my astilbe or is this plant spreading already? If so, can I dig the little clumps up and plant them in other beds?
