    Noteworthy Characteristics

    This one was named appropriately! Mr. Bowling Ball is a dwarf arborvitae that grows in a globose shape to 2 to 3 feet tall with an equal width. But don't expect this one to be hard like a bowling ball...the thread-like, lacy, blue-green foliage is very soft to the touch. This cultivar may be synonymous with Thuja occidentalis 'Linesville' of the same plant description. 'Linesville' was discovered around 1985 by Joe Stupka as a witches broom growing in a cemetery near Linesville, Pennsylvania.

    Uses

    Single specimen, on either side of an entryway, groupings,, shrub borders, low hedges, home foundation plantings, erosion control on slopes and embankments, container gardens, asian theme gardens

    Culture & Care Tips

    Grow in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Somewhat wide range of soil tolerance, but prefers moist, neutral to alkaline, well-drained loams. Intolerant of dry conditions. Best in full sun, but generally appreciates some light afternoon shade in hot summer climates. Avoid full shade where foliage density will substantially decrease. Avoid exposed, windy sites. Many sources list this plant as hardy to Zone 7 however we are growing it here in Zone 8A with no problems
