Soft Touch Holly is a low-growing, evergreen Japanese Holly shrub. The dark green leaves have a prominent silver ridge on the middle adding dimension to the leaves. The leaves are softer than other Japanese hollies giving it its name.

Soft Touch Holly is drought tolerant and hardier than the Helleri Holly, enabling it to be grown further north. Little or no pruning is required to maintain the rounded shape—an excellent choice for foundation plantings, borders, or where a small hedge is desired.

Small black berries are noticeable in the winter, adding interest for the gardener and songbirds to enjoy the berries. In the spring, the new growth is a vibrant green color highlighted by the dark green leaves of the prior year, giving this holly a two-tone effect.
