A Living ‘Bowling Ball’ for Your Garden or Small Space

Mr. Bowling Ball Arborvitae, Thuja occidentalis 'Bobazam', is a hardy evergreen. These would make a lovely, low hedge or foundation planting for your yard. They’re especially useful in areas where space is limited!

You’re sure to love your Mr. Bowling Ball Arborvitae from the moment you see it. This adorable plant has all the wonderful characteristics of an Arborvitae in a spherical, no maintenance form.

Mr. Bowling Ball’s lacy, fine-textured foliage is soft-to-the-touch and retains its rich, green color year-round.  It’s a unique, compact, perfectly global Arborvitae, filling out right down to ground level.

Mr. Bowling Ball Arborvitae is a dwarf conifer growing to about 3 feet in height with an equal spread, so it’s especially great for urban settings where space may be at a premium. 

It has no significant disease or insect problems.  Mr. Bowling Ball Arborvitae is adaptable to a variety of soils and conditions, including some tolerance of urban pollution.  It requires little or no shearing and needs no pruning to remain neat and tidy. 

Mr. Bowling Ball Arborvitae can be expected to live up to 30 years, so it’s certainly a good investment in an Arborvitae.

mr bowling ball Review by trey
small but mighty Review by Bob
This plant is a pet favorite of mine. It is virtually a perfect and trouble-free plant, as well as being a true dwarf. Good gray-green color and much tougher than it looks, even under snow. My plant grows in probably 2/3 day shade and doesn't seem to mind a bit.
No pruning Review by Jiggs
I thinks the Mr. Bowling ball is a great plant mainly because I do not have to prune or fuss with it at all. Stays nice and green.
Perfect Review by Antonio
I have 6 and love them, but I wish they would grow to the desired height a little faster. I've had them 3 full seasons now and they're only about 1 and 1/2 feet!
Very Nice Evergreen Review by Barbara
Mr. Bowling Ball is a really nice evergreen. I love that it keeps a perfectly round shape with no pruning and the size is perfect. I planted them in front of mature holly bushes and they look great.
