Evergreen

Sentinels in the landscape, evergreens retain their foliage and color throughout the seasons.  They are versatile in their foliage, needle-like and scale-like, and have an upright, pyramidal, and rounded shrub habit.  Evergreens are very popular, require little maintenance, and possess high landscape value.

Subtle in nature, evergreens go seemingly unnoticed until the colors of summer and fall quiet and their performance begins.  Braving wind, rain, snow and freezing temperatures, these strong and steadfast plants, with their frosted berries, exfoliating bark, contrasting color and lovely silhouettes, become reliable hosts of winter.

Cultivation: Evergreens are excellent for foundation planting, ground cover, specimen, hedges and barriers.  Evergreens provide screening, privacy, texture and contrast, as well as shelter and food for wildlife.
