Lioness Topiary could be the crown jewel of your garden - after all, this big cat is the queen of the jungle, so why would your patch of green be any different? Shaped from Ligustrum Jonandrum or small leafed privet, the mighty lioness is just one of the many topiary animals for sale at our Plant Centre.
The impressive lounging Lioness Topiary is 70 centimetres tall (excluding the pot), with a diameter of 1 metre. Due to its compact size, this Ligustrum Jonandrum Topiary is suitable to be used as a statement plant in gardens of all sizes. To create this fantastic feline, we trained a privet shrub over a wire frame for many years. This is partly because of the slow-growing habit of this small-leafed privet shrub, which is an advantage once the living green sculpture has been made: it means that this topiary tree needs very little maintenance. Simply trim your Lioness Topiary twice a year, once in the spring and again at the summer’s end.
While privet shrub is fully hardy in the UK, in exposed locations and severe winters some of the foliage might be lost. However, this is not a reason for worry, as leaves will grow back again in the spring,
