As an experiment to see how quickly these perennials spread, we planted an entire bed of some of our favorite fast-growing perennials at our test garden a couple of years ago. You can see how quickly it filled out in the slide show at right. We’ve also included the plan and plant list below if you’d like to try part or all of this bed in your own garden.
