    More about the Soft Touch Holly...

    Noteworthy Characteristics

    Soft Touch Holly, a member of the Japanese Holly family (Ilex crenata), is a low growing, mounding evergreen shrub with small, rounded, boxwood-like, soft-textured, dark green leaves.

    Uses

    It's naturally dense and mounding habit to about 2-3 feet in height with a spread of 3-4 feet, and the fact that it responds very well to shearing, makes the Soft touch Holly one of the best evergreen shrubs for use in foundation plantings. The shrub can be kept to about half its mature size with regular pruning or shearing. It can also be useful as an underplanting for mid-size trees such as Crape Myrtle and Japanese Maples, or as a low-growing natural to formal hedge. 

    Culture & Care Tips

    The Soft Touch Holly is easy to grow in locations that provide well-drained acidic soil and full sun to light shade. Avoid planting in soils that remain consistently soggy as this will cause problems with the roots. It is drought tolerant when established only requiring supplemental irrigation during prolonged periods of drought during summer.

    I ordered and received three of these late last summer. They came fast, packaged with tlc and had a healthy appearance. In the ground they went. I live in NJ and we had one of the worst winters this past season - I could barely see them for most of it. My understanding is that the deer were worse than ever this year, eating things they normally wouldn't because of the lack of food in our region. Unfortunately for me, my soft touch holly got a bit of a nibble, but they are recovering beautifully. It is April, the sun is shining (mostly) and I can see them filling out a bit. Sturdy plants, a beautiful green, highly recommend!
