Face of a City #3: Is Edward Scissorhands in Houston?

Okay, it’s not really Edward Scissorhands. But these topiaries do look like they could have stepped out of a Tim Burton movie.

A little bit about the real Scissorhands: The River Oaks Plant House has been manufacturing topiaries in Houston for over thirty years. These sculptures are created locally inside the store. They have a huge selection of animals and other shapes that they produce and you can also ask for any custom shape you wish for.

From their catalog:

The experience showed that people are getting very attached to their topiaries. They end up being named and considered as a member of the family.

The River Oaks Plant House is located at 3401 Westheimer Road in Houston.
