Shaping Up a Plan for Topiary

Lately I've been dreaming up some ideas about topiaries for the garden this season.

Topiary forms in the garden and in home decor interest me. I love the formal shape and the
punch of color they bring to a design.

This one is made on a Styrofoam form, but I have some wire forms on the patio that I usually use for training ivy, rosemary, and mandevilla vines.

This year I'm planning to get an early start with the passion vine and try to grow that on a standard ball form. It really grows like wild when we get a nice hot, humid summer. I hope it will fill up the entire wire top.
This was a Passion vine grown in a previous season. It did well into late September.
