Many people enjoy gardening as a hobby. Many take it up as a profession too. There's really something magical about planting seeds on barren land, nurturing them, and watching them flourish into a full-fledged garden, with brilliantly vibrant colors. Butterflies and bees going about their business on the pretty flowers, and birds nesting their young ones in the green plumage of the trees. The garden outlined with different shrubs and bushes, forming a breathtaking landscape and privacy screen as well. Nature's extravagant bounty, at its best. In simple terms, an evergreen plant, is that plant, which bears leaves throughout the year. One of the main reasons for the plant being evergreen, is that this is the way the plant adjusts itself to a low nutrient content. Hence, you will notice that they grow in different types of soil, and can also survive different types of climate. In this article, we will show you the different trees and shrubs that are evergreen.
