Am in California still. Saw 2 trees in a front garden I didn't recognise. What on earth are they ?

Could be Box (Buxus sempervirens)

They look as if they have been cloud pruned - very pretty.There is one near me that looks the same but has been pruned into flat disc shapes.

Thanks for the replies. I'm going to call at the house and ask a few questions

Oh they're definately shaped like that as a form of topiary, you can get them in the UK. They're usually done with Buxus but some are conifers and this one is a holly
