Topiary sculpting is definitely an interesting art form. Slowly, over a period of months, these artists train plants to hold particular shapes. This is mostly done by frequently clipping the plants with shears, but sometimes wire meshes are also used to reinforce any chosen shape. And often various flowers are added to these sculptures to provide color and detail, which greatly helps to bring these sculptures to life. The following list includes a wide variety of these topiary sculptures, and they show just how diverse and intricate this art form can be.

Everyone needs to take a nap from time to time. This big fella’ looks like he had a little too much for lunch.
