There is something very enticing about a pair of topiary spirals standing sentinel by an entrance, marking a pathway in the garden or gracing a roof terrace. The ultimate architectural plants, topiary spirals add a decorative twist to your outside space wherever you may place them.
Contrary to their striking appearance, these living sculptures do not require a lot of maintenance. Here at Paramount Plants, we have many varieties of topiary spirals to choose from, from our own native yew spirals to the much in vogue conifer topiary. Our spirals come in a range of sizes from around 1 metre to over 3 metres tall.
TIP: Topiary Spirals can be particularly useful as decorative additions to your home during the festive period. Plant them outside once Christmas is over.
