I am looking for a shrub that will stay green all year long. The catch I don't really want evergreens but something with small leaves. Is there anything where the leaves stay on all year long? thanks
Hi Cookie, evergreens is an umbrella description for all plants that remain green all year long. So that covers pines, firs, spruce, yews, boxwood, hollies, euonymous (semi evergreen)- to name a few.
So perhaps what you are searching is something like boxwood which is an evergreen but certainly not a pine or a fir.
I was going to suggest holly...and boxwood is a great idea.
Adding Pieris Japonica to the above lists...
"google" it...a very nice shrub
thanks so much. I really do like them both.
