Part folk artist, though with a surrealistic bent, and part Edward Scissorhands, though without the angst, topiary creator extraordinaire Pearl Fryar is the humblest celebrity you'll ever meet, quietly plying his craft at his modest home in the unlikely location of Bishopville, South Carolina. The end result is anything but low-key. Fryar's sculpted trees populate a living wonderland that has been visited by everyone from renowned British garden expert Rosemary Verey to groups of local school children.
