In botany, an evergreen is a plant that has leaves in all four seasons, always green. This contrasts with deciduous plants, which completely lose their foliage during the winter or dry season. There are many different kinds of evergreen plants, both trees and shrubs. Evergreens include: ⁕most species of conifers ⁕live oak, holly, and "ancient" gymnosperms such as cycads ⁕most angiosperms from frost-free climates, such as eucalypts and rainforest trees The Latin binomial term sempervirens refers to the evergreen nature of the plant, for instance: An additional special case exists in Welwitschia, an African gymnosperm plant that produces only two leaves which grow continuously throughout the plant's life but gradually wear away at the apex. Welwitschia can live for over 1,000 years. Leaf persistence in evergreen plants varies from a few months to several decades.
