Evergreen, a plant that retains its leaves throughout the year. The term evergreen is usually used in describing trees and shrubs. Most evergreens are narrow-leaved and bear cones rather than flowers. Examples are spruce, hemlock, pine, and fir. Some evergreens are broad-leaved and bear flowers. Examples are mountain laurel, holly, and common myrtle.
Orchids might be the sexiest flower in the greenhouse. Its very name comes from the Greek word for "testicle!" And its reproduction methods are pretty exotic too.
How can something as delicate and delicious as a cranberry thrive in something as filthy as a bog? Blame it on the durability of this most unusual and hardy plant.
