Broadleaf evergreens excel at providing color and ornamental charm in the landscape and are excellent for foundation planting, ground cover, hedges, screens, windbreaks and attractive specimens. Many of these elegant shrubs provide massive color displays to welcome spring.
Broadleaves display large, wide or flat foliage. As new growth emerges, the oldest 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, howerver the plant remains alive.
Available in a wide variety of colors and shapes, as well as temperature and soil tolerances, these plants range from dwarf, compact and prostrate forms, to large sprawling shrubs.
