Advise plants for topiary


Hello! Advise the plants for the topiary (for individual figures, not a fence)? Which plants lend themselves well to shearing? Keep their shape and density, not bald in places over time?

Answers:

Evergreens, such as boxwood, holly, yew, are used to create living sculptures. For hedges, privet is perfect, which you need to cut twice a year in the warm season. But cotoneaster is considered the most ideal option for bold ideas - because it grows very quickly. But, whatever the plant was chosen for the topiary, its stems should be flexible and, at the same time, strong.
