There are a range of different plant species which lend themselves very well to the classic art form of topiary. These include for example holly oaks, bay trees, buxus (producing the famous buxus balls) and the much in demand cloud trees.
Traditionally, topiary was predominantly used in formal garden settings such as in elegant parterres in manor houses and stately homes as well as in Elizabethan knot gardens. Topiary was also much used in herb gardens and potagers.
