I prefer it the way it is. Searching for and reading old threads that may or may not answer your question is time consuming with no guaranteed result.


We don't need to be as other forums do we? (properly moderated or not). If all forums were the same there would be no choice.

Shrub identification

the next 2 are a variegated Eleagnus ebbingii and in front Aucuba japonica.


and I wouldn't have put those 2 variegated ones together.


and there isn't really room for both of them there.

if the subject is in the thread title you can use the search facility but if not and you can't remember what it was called, then not. 

Hybrid. Clematis, Acer.

Given the size of your yard  I'd get rid of it now Brian. (the plant not the yard)

Is this an Acer ?

Posted: 15/09/2016 at 14:07

I think it's Acer negundo, one of the variegated ones, maybe 'Flamingo' as Dilly suggests.


It's got the pinnate leaves of A. negundo which no cornus has.


Another photo might help


Box Elder is Acer negundo. Common names are so confusing.

Raising height of standard (lollipop) topiary

I'll do my best since nobody else has


From the flat-topped appearance I think these have already had their growing tips removed to stop upward growth and make the ball. From there they will have made multiple stems. Therefore no single stem to carry on upwards. The multiples will go on upwards. When you have removed a few lower branches you will find the base of these multiple stems rather than the single trunk.


I have no experience of this, just extrapolating from plant growth generally.
