English: Topiary are sculpted specimens of live woody perennial plants, made by the horticultural practice of training, by pruning the foliage and twigs of trees, shrubs and subshrubs to develop and maintain clearly defined shapes, usually geometrical or fanciful representations. Creating topiary can be an art and is a form of living sculpture. The word derives from the Latin word for an ornamental landscape gardener, topiarius, creator of topia or "places", a Greek word that Romans also applied to fictional indoor landscapes drawn in frescoes. The use of a Greek word may show the art's origins in the Hellenistic world that was influenced by Persia, for neither Classical Greece nor Republican Rome developed any sophisticated tradition of artificial pleasure grounds.
