Evergreen shrubs stay green while developing, but they will quickly turn brown upon trimming their leaves. These plants remain green because they can produce their food throughout the year.

Similarly, they have broad and lustrous leaves. For this reason, their leaf shape enables them to keep water in freezing temperatures without enough light.

Evergreens are under the category of perennials, similar to deciduous and semi-deciduous.

Evergreen Vs. Deciduous

Another type of perennial is deciduous, and its literal meaning is "fall off." The deciduous plants lose their leaves during winter dormancy, but their branches remain.

Evergreen Vs. Semi-deciduous

Unlike deciduous, these plants undergo partial shedding of leaves in winter or summer. This cycle shows how flexible trees can be.
