Topiary-and-Standards - Just Arrived

A Standard is defined as: a tree or shrub that is trained to have one central leader or stem and a rounded head of branches. Standards are trained as young plants; the central stem is braced against a stake, forcing it to grow straight and tall. Lower branches and shoots are removed and the remaining upper branches are sheared frequently, to shape and to encourage fullness.

There are many plants that lend themselves to being Topiary specimens. Essentially, it is more desirable that the plant is evergreen, that the leaves are fairly small and interesting, that it produces a seasonal flower and, most important, that it responds well to constant pruning.

In very early autumn the bush is covered in tight buds that open to pretty semi-double flowers that are white blushed with rose pink on the edges. Will tolerate sun or shade. Evergreen. PVR CML013.

This Camellia is a great screen or hedging plant. Clips well and always looks good. Remarkably tolerant but will do best in semi-shade with nicely mulched roots. I have 2 of these on different sides of the property and both flower extremely well.
