Thuja occidentalis 'Linesville'

Overall Description

This wonderful globe shaped Arb is actually known by several names throughout the nursery industry - names such as 'Linesville', 'Lionsville'. 'Lyonville', as well as a particularly interesting name of 'Mr Bowling Ball' Arborvitae. No matter which name you choose to use, you are sure to have a very nice, low maintenance variety on your hands that will provide a very dense, soft textured touch to your landscape.
Linesville keeps a good thick, globe shape with little to no trimming whatsoever - but light trimming or shaping will greatly increase / enhance this quality.....especially during the first few growth seasons.

Foliage is very soft to the touch, and is a beautiful sage green color with a hint of blue grey added to it. No winter discoloration. And this variety also appears to be quite cold hardy and tolerates a fairly wide variety of soil conditions. This Arborvitae works very well in group planting, or as a foreground planting with larger upright evergreen as a backdrop. Also has been known to be used as low borders along paths, walkways, sidewalks, etc.

--Fertilization / Feeding :
For maximum health & hardiness, we highly recommend a good grade granular ( preferably organic ) fertilizer / plant food for use with all of our plant species. We personally use, and recommend the Espoma line of organic plant foods, as they are super effective yet gentle enough to use on even the most delicate of evergreen species where fertilizer burn would normally be a major concern. However, a water soluble type plant food (Miracle Gro, or equivalent ) are also acceptable options. Other granular fertilizers with a 6 - 12 - 12, or 10 - 10 - 10 ratio can also be used - but we suggest using them at 1/2 - 3/4 strength to avoid any chemical burn issues to the root system of the plants. Best to fertilize in early spring, and again in mid fall - avoid feeding standard chemical fertilizers during hot summer months, and directly after transplanting. The Espoma Organic Plant Foods may be used at anytime.
