PHOTOS OF SCULPTED SHRUBS & TOPIARY

 

Photographs of topiaries created from evergreens and other woody ornamental plants. Junipers are frequently used to create the most common evergreen topiaries, while other varieties of evergreens, such as Pines and Spruces, can be used to create pom-poms, poodles and spirals. Our photo collection includes topiary plants trimmed from Junipers, Pines, and Spruce, as well as an assortment of grafted and unusually shaped ornamental plants used as accents in the landscape.

'Pom-Pom' Pine
Several varieties of pine can be used to create "Pom-Poms" in the landscape. The distinctive shape is created by using various trimming techniques. It's very important to shape new growth (known as candles) in early summer.
  

  TOPIARY TIPS:  Trim topiaries often. Do your trimming and shearing in the cool of the morning (when foliage is more turgid) using sharp trimmers.
