You could cut the flower stalks off of the plants to stop them from spreading. You'd have to go for species that doesn't self pollinate or form offshoots. I think Drosera filiformis ssp. tracyi doesn't self polinate very well but it can get big.

Drosera adelae, Drosera hamiltonii, Drosera binata 'Marston's Dragon' and Drosera binata "Multifida Extrema " need the pollen from a different clone to produce seed.

Drosera regia and Drosera slackii are species which are slow growing and slower to flower.

These are some good species which don't become weedy.

Those are some excellent answers, thank you! I had been wondering if Hamiltonii would be okay, as having some flat sundews as companion plants would be good, doesn't dominate the view space too much then.

I did hear Regia doesn't self pollinate I believe?

So Spatulata is quite different to Tokaienses then? XD

If you want one that is easy to obtain and doesn't spread quick, go with D. Adelae. You can find them at Lowes super cheap.
