When I saw this very simple, and yet so effective, and attractive curb side creative flower bed, I was so impressed that I had to take a picture.

Here are only two plant varieties: spiky pink gladiolas a newly planted red knockout roses are repeated in this very charming and simple flower bed that is very easy to for anyone to plant in their own garden.

When designing flower garden borders of this sort, try to group the roses together in a block of three's of the same variety, since that gives them more visual impact and it's a lot prettier than planting a series of single specimen roses.

The garden flower bed in the picture above, the white Bolero rose really plays up the pink and burgundy colors including a Love and Peace rose off to the right.

The tall spiky perennial in burgundy and pink are Foxgloves. Blue Bearded Irises are planted in between the 'Bolero' and the 'Love and Peace'.

Rose garden roses should include shrubby upright growing rose varieties such as Teas, Bourbons,Polyanthas, Chinas and modern shrub roses, floribundas and hybrid tea roses.

By carefully combining these roses with ornamental plants, you can achieve striking combinations that produce color all year.
