I came across this whimsical hedge on a walk near my home in Vancouver.
Looks like Thuja occidentalis 'Smaragd'. Commercially produced small ones trained to consist of a green star on a stick have apparently been on the market here in later years. Otherwise for some similar effects see the Bad Pruning slide show here:
@Eric La Fountaine, I love the hedge.
@Ron B, that site is a lot more serious than I expected, with a lot of good information. But I didn't find the Bad Pruning slide show. Maybe it's only viewable by members?
Speaking from years of experience wrassling with my own shrubberies, I have utmost respect for how much sheer muscle, imagination, and smoothly-working shears go into such creations. Hats off!

I've never used the Member Login. The pruning slide show is near the top of the right hand column.
OK, thanks. I guess it took knowing that it was supposed to do something. All I saw was bad hair day. Now I see that the photos change automatically in that area, maybe after I clicked? Or I just waited long enough. It's short but good. Home
There must be some really creative and talented deer in that neighbourhood
Pls go by nr Halloween !
And in a light snowfall ... it would look great
Thx for posting
I first learned of Plant Amnesty yrs ago at the annual Sunset Garden show in downtown Seattle
Unfortunately - this type of organization has not reached a lot of us private gardeners at home all the way to city / county type employees ! (Prince Rupert cherry blossom trees last year?)
I believe that the federal govt replaced the trees later in the year -

Where in Vancouver is this charming hedge? I'm not generally a huge fan of topiary, but this hedge is definitely worth a closer look.
