    Soft Touch Compact Holly

    • 100% money-back guarantee
    • Free shipping on all orders over $120

    Soft Touch Compact Holly, Ilex crenata 'Soft Touch', has a supple texture that is similar to Boxwood. This little evergreen grows dense foliage and rarely gets taller than 3' making the practice of pruning nearly obsolete. Its affinity for warmer weather and low maintenance needs makes Soft Touch Compact Holly a staple for many residential and commercial landscapes in southerly climates. Glossy green leaves last year-round while abundant black berries add even greater winter significance.

    Shipping Methods

    Orders will be shipped via FedEx Home Delivery.

    Orders are generally in route for 2-5 business days (depending on where you live).

    We are sticklers about packaging and shipping your order in a way that guarantees healthy plants upon arrival. If plants are damaged on arrival, just let us know and we'll send you new ones or offer a full refund.

    All of our plants are container grown and shipped with the soil and roots fully intact. We DO NOT ship your plants bare-root. Being shipped as a containered plant greatly reduces the risk of the plant not surviving the transit to your home.

    WOW

    The plants arrived in great shape and are currently in the ground waiting to grow so I can enjoy seeing the berries on it and hopefully having the deer leave it alone.
