Deciduous Shrubs

What are deciduous trees and shrubs?

[ (di-sij-ooh-uhs) ] Trees and shrubs that, unlike evergreens, lose their leaves and become dormant during the winter.


Deciduous shrubs are the ones that lose their leaves in winter, but there are very few other common denominators. Deciduous shrub varieties can be tall as a short tree or low as ground cover. If you are interested in growing deciduous shrubs, it's helpful to have a few in mind before you begin shopping.
