The creeping, spreading types of plants should be avoided if you're having trouble containing them in a single area. These are generally perennials and once they get a foothold, they will grow for many years. To be on the safe side, plant only annuals in your flower bed. They will die off at the end of the season and you can pull them out of the garden. Annuals typically are well behaved and as long as you cut off the spent flowers before they go to seed, you won't have problems with them. Best wishes with your flower garden.
