Fryar's Topiary Garden


Fryar's Topiary Garden, located in Bishopsville, South Carolina, is an unusual place! The three-acre grounds surround a ranch-style house which belongs to a gentleman named Pearl Fryar. The topiaries there are his creations. The collection includes 300 individual plants, many of which were rescued from the compost piles of local nurseries. The topiaries include geometric designs and whimsical creations.


The gardens are open Tuesday through Saturday from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM. Visitors can get a brochure that includes a self-guided walking tour. A $3.00 donation per person is requested.

    1. Me too! There was a really cool garden in Columbus that was a topiary rendition of a famous painting. It was very cool!

  5. A second chance for plants. I like that. Don't know why, but the thought of a topiary makes me think of Edward Scissorhands :)
