[Tagging] Decorative flower fields? (not as a crop?)

landuse=flowerbed already exists in the wiki.  Personally I would just use this but if another tag is to be developed one consideration with regard to using an "landuse" tag is, should it be more widely applicable?

"landuse=ornamental_planting" for example with another tag to describe the type of plant, i.e. flower, shrub, grass etc. would allow it to be used much more widely.

So landuse=ornamental_flowers is the current value I will propose, as it has no size connotations

yes, it has no size connotations, but it is about "ornament"? Or am I misreading this? 
You keep speaking of "flower fields", so I think this is the tag to go.

well, ornamental flowers are flowers that are for display purposes. Flower fields sounds like it is just for flowers in a large field, rather than an area of flowers for all sizes. I liked the suggested value of ornamental_flowers.
Do you think there is a need for a landuse=flowerbed and landuse=flower_field? I thought landuse=ornamental flowers would cover both quite well.
