Reference on how to calculate the gallon size of a shrub?

What I'm asking is, is there a reference or a formula to know the size root ball based on the height of the shrub? For example, a 12inch green gem boxwood comes in what gallon size container?

Most states no longer allow the use of the term "gallon" in describing plant sizes because in commerce it is a specific volume and the bureaus of weights and measures were getting their panties in a bunch over it. You may have noticed that most nurseries are using #1, #2, #3, #5, .... rather than the term "gallon".

As for your question .... This should answer that:
