There are so many online topiary gift options available, that selecting just one can be a challenge, though a very pleasant challenge. Just looking at all the imaginative and lovely topiary possibilities is a treat. Whether your search is for a real plant topiary, or a gift with a topiary theme, you are likely to find something suitable.
Yellow Lily Topiary
A yellow lily topiary makes a bright and cheerful gift. At Web sites like Teleflora.com, there are standard and deluxe lily and solidaster topiary arrangements, both presented in green ceramic pots. Each topiary stands about 23 inches tall by 11 inches wide. A fluttering butterfly ornament adds a touch of fun.
Online stores such as Sur La Table (surlatable.com) offer an interesting selection of herb and fruit topiaries that will please the chefs among us. For example, there is a Mediterranean Topiary Set that includes individual clay pots of olive, lavender and rosemary plants. The plants are about 9 inches tall, and the clay pots are about 3 inches in diameter. They come in a rectangular wire basket.
Sur La Table also sells individual topiaries. There is a Creeping Fig Topiary too. The plant is about 12 inches high, and its pot is about 5 inches in diameter. Aerial roots of the fig plant grow along a wire frame.
For creative topiary gifts for the home and garden, visit websites like that of New York artist, Michelle Masters (MichelleMasters.com), where you will find a host of clever gifts. Their names are as whimsical as the creations themselves: Lady Lavender Hat, Shirley's Tulip Chapeau, Daffodil Pump, Topiary Purse, and Flowered Sundress, among others.
For shipments to friends in the United Kingdom, take a look at the range of topiary gifts at online stores like The Topiary Company (topiary-online.co.uk). There are 2D and 3D topiaries in small, medium and large sizes, trained to grow into silhouettes and shapes of animals. For example, consider a window box dove or a rabbit in the vegetable patch. There are other options too. One of them is a pair of topiary spirals: two plants trimmed in opposite directions that can be placed on either side of an entryway. These Buxus sempervirens cones come with planting directions. The Topiary Company also sells a range of useful topiary tools.
Golden Retriever Topiary
If you would like to try your hand at creating your own plant, there is a beautiful topiary frame available that is designed by Green Piece Wire Act. It is a Golden Retriever Topiary Frame, sold at Dogstuff.com. This hand crafted frame measures about 31 inches by 44 inches by 11 inches, and would make a striking garden centerpiece.
