Plants are leafing out in…Florida, Texas, and parts of California and the Southwest! Check out the USA NPN Status of Spring tracker for more information. Would you like to take a guess when the first leaf will appear in the park?
The leaves pictured above are European Holly, which is a broadleaf evergreen shrub. The plant’s leaves are broad—not needle-like—and aren’t all shed in the autumn. The leaves below belong to a Deodar Cedar, a coniferous evergreen. A conifer is a needle-leaved (or scaled-leaved) plant.
