The purpose of our work was the study of characteristics of flowering stage, ornamental values and used bedding plant (Tagetes and Antirrhinum) cultivars as integral components in landscape architecture and urban design in Kosovo. Ornamental plant production in the Republic of Kosovo has a seventy years old tradition. Production of ornamental plants is mainly performed under protected environment while the production of ornamental trees, shrubs, rose seedlings is organized outdoors. Primarly grown are cut flowers, roses, gerbera, carnations, bedding plants, etc. Two bedding plants with five cultivars have been studied: Tagetes erecta ‘Lemon Mum’, Tagetes eracta ’Kilimanjaro White’ and Antirrhinum majus ’Sonnet’, Antirrhinum majus ‘Black Prince' etc. During the vegetation were measured: blooming seasons, number of flowers, diameter of flowers, colour and length of growth. The cultivars studied have a rich range of colors in garden, from white, yellow, green, dark red, etc. Blooming time depends on cultivar, and it begins for Tagetes and Antirrhinum cultivars in May and continues until October. Bedding plants have manifested high decorative values in urban landsacape under the Kosovo climate condition.
