Rippling flowerbed dresses up a garden. Curves create a gentle edge to both the border and the beds in this garden. In place of a hardscape material, a stretch of lawn serves as walkway. A castor bean adds vertical height to the flowerbed. Repeating plants, including delphinium and phlox, supply visual consistency. Annuals such as snapdragons add welcome bursts of bright color. Love this garden, love curved beds, they're so pretty!
