 and applied also to all those broad-leaved plants that bear green leaves throughout the year. Of the latter, most are plants of the tropics, subtropics, and other areas where the growing season is prolonged (e.g., New Zealand and the Pacific Northwest of the United States). In colder climates various broad-leaved shrubs (e.g., box, holly, and members of the heath family) are evergreen. Some broadleaf evergreens shed all their leaves for a brief period; the rest lose them continually, producing new leaves as the old ones fall. The term "half-evergreen" is used for deciduous plants with relatively persistent leaves.

What does it mean when you dream about evergreens? (plant)

Evergreen plants, such as pine trees, traditionally represent immortality because they do not shed their leaves, even in the dead of winter. They also symbolize hope in the midst of despair for the same reason. Because of their association with Christmas, evergreens also symbolize gift-giving.
