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.

Native. You'll love this versatile little plant which forms a dense rounded ball of fresh green foliage that seldom needs clipping. Looks fabulous group planted or makes a natural topiary specimen for court-yard containers. Grows well in sun or part shade. PVR.

Pittorsporums love well drained fertile soil but are remarkably tolerant plants and will adapt to less than ideal conditions. They are hardy and generally healthy.

Picture of Trachelospermum Jasminoides Std

CLICK TO ENLARGE..

Jasmine standards. In my opinion one of the best evergreen climbers available to gardeners. Leathery glossy green leaves that have tones of red in winter and myriads of little white star shaped flowers in summer. Wonderfully fragrant. Well behaved and easy to grow. A wonderful weeping standard form. Evergreen
