Arborvitae, Mr Bowling Ball

Description: Naturally globe shaped, this spherical bush has dense, soft, sage green foliage that has a fine, almost lacy texture. The look varies dramatically from other Arborvitae, as it more resembles a fine needled Juniper or a mossy Cypress. The tight and compact habit keeps its shape without pruning. Excellent for the rock garden, in formal gardens, as a foundation plant, and even in a patio container.
