PHOTOS OF TOPIARY AND SCULPTED PLANTS

Photographs of topiaries created from evergreens and other woody ornamental plants. Junipers are frequently used to create the most common evergreen topiaries, while other varieties of evergreens, such as Pines and Spruces, can be used to create pom-poms, poodles and spirals.
