Mini Daffs spread?

kentstar(5b, NE Ohio)April 28, 2011

I have preordered 200 Kidling Daffodils from Colorblends for the fall. I am planning on planting them in a couple 14 ft by 2 ft raised beds that I have out front.

I do have other perennials in those beds but would like some springtime color, don't want to worry about the leaves looking ugly for a couple months, and thought that minis would be a good choice for the beds. The other perennials (heuchera's, brunnera, hostas, tiarellas) could hide the daff foilage for the summer.

How much do minis spread? Are they going to crowd out the perennials? Or will it be ok to plant in there?

The reason I ask is... I did a bonehead move once by planting mini iris in the bed and boy did they multiply!! By year two also! I ended up having to get them out of there before I strangled the other perennials with the iris! :)

They'll be fine. They don't spread like mini bearded iris do. They play well with others.
