We often hear from people who are intimidated by or tired of pruning shrubs that seem to get leggy or too big for their spaces. When we hear this, it’s a sign that it’s not the right plant for the right place. Enter Mr. Bowling Ball, the naturally rounded dwarf shrub that is slow-growing, versatile and one of the easiest-to-grow evergreens out there.
Yours will appreciate full sun (tolerating some afternoon shade) and will grow in perfect ornamental spheres up to 2-3 feet tall and wide, with finely textured, feather-like bunches of sage green foliage that’s soft to the touch. Works well as an accent or hedge.
