Topiary pine trees are grown in a wide range of styles from spirals to cloud trees. They can be single or multi-stemmed and have straight or bendy trunks. As pine trees are indeed quite bendy when young, they lend themselves well to the ancient Japanese art of Niwaki, the age-old practice of carefully and patiently clipping and shaping trees over time into elaborate and beautiful forms such as cloud trees.
We recently expanded our conifer collection and this now includes an exciting range of topiary pine trees. In Western Europe, we are most familiar with topiary shapes using Ilex Crenata (Japanese Holly). But in Japan, practicing the art of Niwaki using pine trees has long been a way of life for the Japanese gardener.
