If you’re looking for a versatile small, dense, evergreen shrub that can be used for accent planting or for edging, the Soft Touch Holly is what you are looking for. It grows into a neat mound about 3 feet tall and 3 or 4 feet across and it can also be grown as a low hedge.

• Free of pests and other problems
• Spineless foliage ideal if you have children
• Makes the perfect foundation plant or low hedge
• Just three feet tall and wide even if left unclipped
• Full sun or partial-shade in all kinds of soil

It is hardy from zone 5 to zone 9, so it can be used almost everywhere to give structure and form to the garden. It can be clipped into shape as needed, or into a hedge, or simply left to grow for a super-low-maintenance foundation plant or evergreen accent. This is a plant that always looks neat and tidy and its small, glossy, spineless and rich green leaves are always a pleasure to see.
