This Pelican shaped Topiary Tree is a graceful, elegant evergreen topiary sculpture that will fit in any garden. The impressive white-plumaged bird was particularly appreciated in the medieval times, as the image of “a pelican in her piety” was an important part of the religious symbolism of the time. Nowadays, the large bird is loved for its striking appearance, which is also why this Ligustrum Jonandrum topiary is such a popular garden ornament.
To capture the liking of the beautiful bird, this small leaved privet shrub was expertly trained over a wire frame for many years. While creating the Pelican Topiary Tree required a lot of effort, maintaining it in top shape certainly does not. Trimming it twice a year will suffice: once at spring, and again at the end of the summer.
As the Pelican Topiary Tree is 1.2 to 1.3 metres high (excluding the pot), it will be suitable for gardens and lawns of all sizes. The evergreen foliage of the Ligustrum Jonandrum ensures that this living green sculpture offers year-round interest.
