Corn varieties that can be planted in proximity?

Jal_ut alluded to it here: https://www.helpfulgardener.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=180600#180600

And it may seem really obvious, but please tell me specifically, can I plant 100-110 days Bloody Butcher and a freebie bonus packet "experimental" hybrid bicolor se 66-67 day sweet corn in close proximity without them affecting each other :?:

i plant three types of corn if i can get them in, usually two though. i start sweet corn as early as i can, then around mid to late june when the other corn is about knee high i plant my dry corn, again when its about knee high i plant popcorn. some years the popcorn finishes, some it doesnt. but the other two corns finish.

There is enough difference in the maturity time for those two varieties that it won't be a problem if planted the same day.

Thanks! That means I can plant those two on that side of the house without orries, and plant a small patch of another variety on the opposite side of the house. :D

I like te staggering idea too. I wonder if I can get popcorn in somewhere.... 8)
