Enjoy the Grandeur of Topiaries Without the Formality

Lollipop-shaped Muehlenbeckia have a sort of conservatory-gone-wild charm. In an unfussy row, they feel classical but still relaxed. Since these topiaries don’t need direct sunlight, they can live in the middle of a room, away from windows. Set them on a narrow table or console behind a sofa as an organic room divider. A galvanized tray is perfect for catching water, protecting your furniture, and bringing polish to the grouping. You can find nine-inch topiaries like these at upscale nurseries, starting at about $35 each; ivy and myrtle also work well.

Care: Indirect light. Water whenever the surface of the soil is dry to the touch.

Zinc tray (24 by 7 inches), $11, jamaligarden.com.
