This artificial boxwood half ball topiary is realistic and natural-looking. The topiary comes securely "potted" in a solid black ceramic urn measuring 7" tall. The overall dimensions are measured from the bottom of the vase to tallest leaf tip: 11 1/2" tall x 8" diameter. All measurement are approximate and will be determined by your shaping of the item upon unpacking. No arranging is necessary, only minor shaping, with the way in which we pack and ship our products. This is only intended for indoor use.
