Broadleaf Evergreens

Broadleaf Evergreens retain their foliage through all seasons. Many varieties produce showy flowers in the spring and some provide a display of attractive fruit in the fall. Due to their various sizes, their application in the landscape vary from an accent plant, to mass planting, or a filler shrub.
