The topiary dolphins at the entrance to Corona del Mar -- once shaped so precisely they appeared to be leaping out onto bustling Coast Highway -- have begun to resemble manatees. Leaf-trimming couldn't save the creatures; no specialty pruner could be found. So the city has decided to remove the iconic bushes and hire someone to grow and groom new ones. "It's very, very difficult to get them back to the original shape unless you're like an Edward Scissorhands ," said Kathy Sommer , a horticulturalist who works with the city on plant care issues.
