A “topiary” elephant in the Rose Garden, Regent’s Park

I was in the Rose Garden in Regent’s Park yesterday with my daughter and we came across this rather lovely elephant at the entrance. I didn’t have my camera so have borrowed this image from the Sequins and Cherry Blossom blog.

Not sure I’d call it topiary as it is trained over a wire frame, but I like it anyway. Apparently it’s made from ‘over three thousand plants from a range of species including Echeveria, Ajuga, Sedum and Alternanthera’. A lot of the individual plants look to me like desert or rock plants, which will survive with fairly shallow roots.
