When you welcome Mr. Bowling Ball™ Arborvitae into your garden, you can put away those shears, because he is the perfect round evergreen you have been looking for. Rather than clip, ending up with a lop-sided blob, just leave it to Mr. Bowling Ball™ to be a perfect sphere all the time, without needing even a touch from those shears. It will grow steadily into a round ball 3 feet tall, and 3 feet in diameter, in about 10 years, and add an inch or two each year after that. Use it in planters or boxes for that formal look, dot them around in garden beds as accents, or make a low hedge out of them. No matter how or where you grow it, this shrub will deliver the perfect sphere every time.

  • Perfect spherical form without clipping
  • Dense, ferny foliage is green all year round
  • Grows steadily to 3 feet tall and 3 feet diameter
  • Winter hardy even in zone 3
  • Trouble free and very easy to grow

Grow Mr. Bowling Ball™ Arborvitae in full sun or with afternoon shade. This plant is super hardy, growing happily even in the cold of zone 3, and growing equally well across the country into zone 8. It grows best in rich, moist, well-drained soil, and it should be watered regularly during long dry periods. It has no pests or diseases of any significance, and since it never needs clipping it is virtually maintenance-free, yet always look neat and perfect. Surely the top spherical evergreen ever developed.
