Answer: You might see if a garden center can locate (or can have custom grown) small clipped boxwoods. Most evergreens are grown from cuttings and would require custom shearing or training to make the type of plant I think you are envisioning. Alternatively you might be able to train some ivy topiaries to give the effect you want and possibly at a lower cost. In either case it is not too soon to start searching.
