Answer #1 ·'s Answer · Hi - This is a good question and one I can provide an answer to.

When the Gardenality team were first designing the website we discussed the issue about using the "evergreen," "semi-evergreen," and "deciduous" attributes on the Plant Files. After some discussion, and because we didn't have any members yet to get feedback from, we decided not to include them. Reason being, there are some plants that might be evergreen in zone 9 that are not evergreen in other zones further north and we wanted to keep the info on the Plant Files as accurate as is possible for visitors who come in from various regions, from all over the US and around the world.

That being said, since the initial launch of Gardenality in 2011, we have received much feedback on this issue with many members suggesting that we include this attribute. So, sometime in the near future we will make it possible for members who add new plant files in Gardenality or update existing ones to make selections regarding this foliage attribute. We'll put something on the plant file that says: "Note: A plant that is evergreen in one zone might not be evergreen in another zone"...or something to that effect.

Regarding the "type" of plant, such as "annual," "perennial," "shrub," "tree" and so on, you should find this on every plant file in Gardenality. It appears just to the right of the image and is the first attribute in the list.

Hope this information was helpful and let me know if you have any further questions!
