PlantAmnesty’s mission is to end the senseless torture and mutilation of trees and shrubs, and this photo is used as an example of terrible pruning.
But I must admit, I kind of like it! I would love to have Happy Face shrubs outside my front door. But that’s just me.
PlantAmnesty has a whole photo gallery of plant and shrub mutilation. While most are pretty bad, the more topiary-style shrubs are rather cute.
