Topiary Twisted Stem Bay Trees (also referred to as Corkscrew Bay Trees).
Bay Trees (Latin name Lauris Nobilis) are no strangers to topiary, ideally suited to this ancient gardening art due to their evergreen foliage, dense growth habit and the fact that they are quite happy to be clipped and shaped. We are delighted to have sourced these twisted stem bay trees, with their clear stems twisted in a spiral giving these half and three quarter standard trees a spiralling decorative shape. Think of them as Bay Topiary trees with a twist – literally!
As these highly ornamental twisted stem topiary trees look great as a pair. Use them to great effect to frame a front doorway or an entrance.
These decorative topiary bay trees are happy in any aspect whether in sun or shade. They will also do well in exposed positions such as roof terraces or balconies. Twisted stem bay trees are equally happy when planted in the ground or in a container.
Maintaining the topiary lollipop shape of the crown is not difficult. Bay trees are quite slow growing and so a trim once per year in winter when the plant is dormant should suffice. You may also be interested in topiary bay tree lollipops without the twisted stem.
