The foliage is SO soft, I love to run my hand across the top of it. Can be somewhat aggressive if not frequently thinned out. I've had mine two years and it's just now getting too far out of bounds, so I will wear gloves to thin it to avoid skin irritation (although in my handling of it so far I have not had any problems).
