A Holly that Won't Scrape You!
The Soft Touch Holly is quickly becoming a popular shrub choice due to its small size and soft, flexible foliage.
No more worries about being pricked by holly leaves with this one! Small, glossy leaves are accented by tiny flowers in the spring and black colored berries in the fall and winter... attracting all kinds of birds to your landscape.
Mature height of 2-3 feet makes this shrub an ideal selection for gardeners with limited space and works well as a border or foundation plant.
It's uniform, rounded habit also makes this a low maintenance choice for those who want a polished landscape without all the work.
Prefers partial to full sun. Tolerant of various types of soil, as well as drought. A good shrub selection for zones 5-9

Beautiful Healthy Green Plants
My hollies arrived in fantastic condition. Very healthy and very very green. I bought four 3 gallon plants and all were equally healthy and beautiful. I had to wait to plant them and after about a week in the shade they still looked the same as the day they arrived. Based on my experience so far I'd highly recommend this product and fast growing trees.
This plant with the little round leaves and the beautiful green color are adorable! I received it a couple weeks ago and still have not been able to plant it and it is still healthy.
Never ordered a plant online before but this was a good experience. I ordered 12 soft touch holly plants and they arrived in very good shape are attractive and healthy. I would recommend Fast-Growing Trees.
My hollies came in great condition and were packed perfectly . I was truly impressed with how well they were packed. I've had them for about a month now and they are doing well despite the brutally hot windy conditions we have here. Watering them daily seems to keep them healthy during their first summer in Kansas.
So far so good.
I put it in shortly after receiving it. It arrived in good condition. It appears to be growing nicely. The real test will be whether it survives the winter.
