It's November - think green! More than rhododendron and junipers, some trees, shrubs, vines, groundcover plants, and even ferns remain green throughout the winter, continuing to photosynthesize and getting a head start on growth in the spring. These plants become quite obvious once the other green plants around them have withered. Learn to recognize these seasonal specialists and explore the adaptations their stems and leaves use to survive the New England winters dry winds and low temperatures.
