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.
