Topiary balls of all sorts are a staple for use in the garden either to create a formal look, a fluid bouncy effect or as a stand alone focal point.
Traditionally Buxus has been the go to plant for topiary balls but much has changed in the last few years and as a result we have restructured part of the nursery to reflect the much wider plant choice available as topiary balls.
Ladies and Gents please may I introduce you to our new BALL BED. A tantalising selection of topiary ball alternatives to Buxus. All plants on this bed will need maintenance and pruning to keep to the required shape. In stock we have a range of different plants and different sizes to choose from.
A small selection of plants that can be found on our Ball Bed are highlighted below:
- Azalea Balls. 5 different flowering varieties to choose from. These look great when in flower.
- Osmanthus x burkwoodii. Evergreen foliage with tough, shiny, ovate leaves. In spring the very fragrant tubular white flowers are freely produced. Trim in late summer to keep in shape.
- Lonicera nitida Scoop. Small elegant foliage that responds well to trimming. Perfect for smaller sized topiary balls. Lovely colour to the foliage
- Ilex x meserveae. 4 varieties to choose from with interesting glossy foliage
- Photinia x fraserii Little Red Robin. A compact growing variety of Photinia with bright red new growth and much smaller leaves
- Prunus lusitanica Myrtifolia. A stalwart in the plant world. Excellent glossy foliage held on red stems.
- Ilex crenata balls. 10 different varieties in over 6 sizes available.
These are only a selected few of the options on offer. To check out what else we have in site follow this link – topiary balls
Other ball shaped plants are available to choose from including Pinus mugo options and Pittosporum balls that do not require any pruning are held elsewhere on site.
