Boxwood (buxus sempervirens) is probably the most versatile and popular of topiary plants and the oldest garden ornament known to man. Therefore, it is hardly surprising that the ancient Egyptians were using box for topiary 6000 years ago. Quick and Easy Topiary and Green Sculpture, quickly gets in, and quickly gets out without much substantive information to offer the reader beyond a perfunctory overview on this exciting, and ancient historic clipped form of statuary. Verbal brevity and conciseness characterize the scant text. The photography is attractive. The modern shaping suggestions with overly simple armature may be entirely too kitsch for some.
