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?
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.
