Ever wonder why an Evergreen is called “Evergreen?” It is because the foliage stays green and on the plant year-round. That’s why they’re great for hiding the AC unit next to your house or adding a natural privacy “fence” between you and the neighbor. Planted in the right location, an Evergreen tree or shrub will be a welcome sight during the snowy winter or early spring that can last for many years with little maintenance required.
Evergreens are the foundational “structure” of the landscape, providing a great backdrop for splashes of color. Establish at least 20% – 30% of your landscape in Evergreen species.
In addition to Evergreens, Broadleaf Evergreens are also an option for year-round color and interest. Broadleaf Evergreens also keep their green foliage but they are not conifers and have broad leaves versus needled foliage. Examples include Rhododendrons and Boxwoods.
Flowerland carries several varieties of evergreens and broad leaf evergreens. The following photos are a glimpse of what is available. *Click on image to view full size.
