Dave Thuja o. 'Linesville'
Interesting back ground taken from the ACS Database.
This plant grows naturally and uniformally in a compact globe or ball form with light green juvenile foliage. Grows to about 3' tall and 3' wide in 10 years. The common name of "Mr. Bowling Ball" became a registered trademark name on April 29, 2003 issued to James Zampini, dba as Lake County Nursery, Perry, OH. This cultivar is registered under the cultivar name of Thuja occidentalis 'Bobazam' with a trademarked common name of "Mr. Bowling Ball." It is listed in the Lake County Nursery catalog under this cultivar and common name and by other licensed growers.
Discovered by Joe Stupka, a nurseryman and propagator from Pulaski, PA in the Linesville Cemetery, Linesville, PA about 1985. When Joe found the original broom it was mostly dead with only a few twigs still alive. Because there was so little scion wood, Joe grafted it and mounded peat moss up to the graft union. He later found the scion rooted above the graft in the peat moss. From this rooted cutting future plants were then propagated, this plant roots readily from cuttings.
