Broadleaf Evergreens

Broadleaf evergreens display large, wide or flat foliage. As new growth emerges, old leaves are shed so that the plant is rarely, if ever, without leaves. In extremely cold and dry winters, a majority of the foliage may be shed; however the plant remains very hard. Broadleaf evergreens excel at providing color and ornamental charm in the landscape and are excellent for foundation planting, groundcover, hedges, screens, and windbreaks. Many of these elegant shrubs provide massive color displays to welcome spring.
