(fyi...in interesting news, Katz has announced they will be opening up some Galleria area competition, taking over and building on the River Oaks Plant House lot at 5930 Westheimer for an opening in early 2022) (adjacent/across from Chacho's)

 

edit to say thank you @Highrise Towerfor creating this topic! 🙂

I wonder if that business was responsible for that Mustang? Horse? topiary that stood in ROW in front of its store for so many years. .  I’m not sure anyone has a picture, but surely there is a story some where?
 I remember parking in the parking lot by it when Avondale Civic met upstairs at Rouge (?) restaurant.  
When I first arrived in 2005, the light at Montrose and Westheimer seemed to always back traffic till many times I would be in that traffic line always next to that poor neglected sway backed equine.  No one ever took care of it and ultimately it was hard to tell what it was suppose to be.

Anyone remember?

It's not clear from your story where the horse topiary was located.  Where was it?  FWIW, River Oaks Plant House has always been famous for its topiaries.  When they had their location at Westheimer & Buffalo Speedway, the Buffalo Speedway median had a whole menagerie of topiaries.  Very cool.

Not sure when they closed the lower Westheimer location, but the horse may have been left behind when they closed.

Uh-oh

i thought you were referencing the old plant house next to HPD storefront on Westheimer. That topiary was in the ROW in front of parking lot in front of  Plantstore. Later that plant house moved down Westheimer where the Bistecca Steakhouse (224 Westheimer)  is now. The plant house  closed before 2007 ( I think) I had thought it was a satellite location of River Oaks plant house because of the horse topiary that was planted in front of that store.

sorry I was confused.

 

Still I would like to see if there are any pictures of that topiary. I never heard much about it as far as neighbors knowing it’s history and no one raised a peep when it was cut down prior to Montrose Collective being built.
