Ilex crenata 'Soft Touch'
Soft Touch Japanese Holly. If you are tired of Helleri Holly, but still like little green 'meatballs', you will love this plant. We have not observed the typical dieback associated with 'Helleri'. The branches are unreal-soft compared to the stiffness of other Japanese holly cultivars; consequently, one doesn't experience the broken branches where little four-legged and two-legged creatures are constantly running through your plantings. This one is a real winner. This plant is well named. Ultimate size is 2' high by 3' across.
