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.

Port Wine Magnolia. The dark wine-red blooms of this adaptable evergreen shrub are a little shy, hiding amongst the glossy green foliage. You'll definitely know they're there when you become intoxicated by the powerful fruity fragrance. Plant in sun or part shade with acid soil for best results.
