Why plant Mr. Bowling Ball Arborvitae?
Get ready to roll nothing but strikes! Mr. Bowling Ball® Arborvitae is a perfect globe that will turn you into a landscaping pro. This tidy evergreen adds structure to your borders all year long. What’s more, it maintains its rounded shape on its own—your pruners will never leave the shed. Plant a row of Bowling Balls to serve as a clean, crisp edging for a flower bed, or use Mr. Bowling Ball® to completely encircle a bed of colorful Spirits, framing it like a painting. Part of our Accents program, this compact cutie also works well as a solo accent where some year-round definition is needed.
How to use Mr. Bowling Ball Arborvitae in the landscape?
Don’t be alarmed if your Mr. Bowling Ball® Arborvitae takes on bronzy or plum-colored hues in winter. This is perfectly normal. When the weather warms in spring, the rich green color will return. Growing Mr. Bowling Ball® in a sheltered position away from cold winter winds will keep the foliage greener through the dormant season.

How To Plant Mr. Bowling Ball Arborvitae
Mr. Bowling Ball® Eastern Arborvitae is simple to grow in full sun or light shade. Give it regular water in summer (once a week if no rain falls) and make sure the soil drains well. Mulch with bark, wood chips, or pine straw to keep the root zone cool and moist. Few major pests or diseases trouble Mr. Bowling Ball®, although deer browse may be an issue. In areas where deer are a problem, apply a deterrent such as Plantskydd® Pest Repellent regularly.
How To Water
Mr. Bowling Ball® Eastern Arborvitae will appreciate regular water during its first few years in the ground and irrigation during long dry spells after it’s established.
How To Fertilize
Incorporate Elements Starter Plant food granular form into the soil when planting. If planting in spring or summer, start fertilizing late fall using Elements Starter Plant food granular form on an annual basis each late fall. Continue this for the first three years to get your plant well established.
How To Prune
Due to its slow growth rate and the fact that it maintains its neat, rounded shape, Mr. Bowling Ball® Eastern Arborvitae rarely needs pruning.
