A Man Named Pearl is a documentary film that tells the story of a sharecropper’s son who dug through the trash at a local plant nursery and used what he found to create a work of art. Pearl Fryar started working with cast-off plants in the early 1980s to make his yard more attractive. He discovered a love and a talent for sculpting topiaries. Over the years his project turned into a magical garden that attracted visitors from all over the world. The garden is beautiful, but the true delight of this story is Pearl. His humility and hope to share his lessons with future generations can be an inspiration to us all. This film is more than a story about gardening. It is the story of how good life can be.
