Topiary standards are a popular choice in modern gardens offering a stylish component. The long slender stems of topiary standards raise the foliage above shrubs and grasses in your garden adding visual appeal at a higher level. The foliage that grows above the slender stem is round in shape resembling a lollipop. Topiary ‘lollipops’ can also make a garden feel more spacious due to their high foliage.
A popular species used to grow topiary standards is Photinia Red Robin. This loose leaved species dances beautifully in the wind and grows vibrant red new leaves that develop into glossy green as they age. Photinia also grows small snowy white flowers in spring offering extended seasonal interest. Another popular species is Bay Laurel, an aromatic evergreen that looks beautiful when clipped into the neat lollipop form. It is also a slow growing plant so keeps its shape well.
