Any woody shrub, small tree or herb that is evergreen, with small leaves and compact shape can be used for topiary. The most popular shrubs for outdoor, and occasionally indoor, topiary are yews and boxwood. Their popularity rests on their sturdy single trunk, their ability to thrive with hard pruning and their compact, relatively fast, growth. Hollies, viburnums, laurels, hornbeam and privets can also be successfully used. What you might find in your local garden center could be any of the above. Or, you can purchase a one-gallon plant and make your own topiary with careful pruning. Hope this answers your question!
