Topiary


This page is currently under construction


Topiary is the horticultural practice of training live plants by clipping the foliage of trees and shrubs to develop and maintain clearly defined shapes.

Since its European revival in the 16th century, topiary has been seen on the parterres and terraces of gardens of the European elite, as well as in simple cottage gardens. Traditional topiary forms use foliage pruned and or trained into geometric shapes such as balls or cubes, obelisks, pyramids, cones or tapering spirals. Some popular choices include Buxus, Conifers, Camellias, Azaleas, Bay Trees, Syzygium and Luma.

Some shapes to try are cones, spheres, spirals and standards including single and double clipped balls. There are so many choices in plants that respond well to clipping, so try your hand at a few new varieties and see the results.


Please note that plants are often subject to seasonal availability and growers' stocking levels.
