English: Topiaries are gardens featuring topiary specimens—sculptures in their design.
  • A Topiary is the resulting shaped plant from the horticultural practice of training live woody and perennial plants, by pruning the foliage and twigs of trees, shrubs and subshrubs to develop and maintain clearly defined shapes, usually geometric or fanciful representations.
  • Creating topiaries can be an art and is a form of living sculpture. The word derives from the Latin word for an ornamental landscape gardener, topiarius, creator of topia or "places", a Greek word that Romans applied also to fictive indoor landscapes executed in fresco. No doubt the use of a Greek word betokens the art's origins in the Hellenistic world that was influenced by Persia, for neither Classical Greece nor Republican Rome developed any sophisticated tradition of artful pleasure grounds.
