Evergreens predominate in the south, where grow subtropical plants such as the myrtle, arbutus, laurel, holm-oak, olive and fig; varieties of the same kind are also found on the Atlantic coast (as far north as the Cotentin), where the humidity and mildness of the climate favor their growth.
The proportion of evergreens is large, and has a marked effect on the landscape in winter.
There are still, however, in the coast belt woods of leguminous evergreens bearing bright-coloured flowers.
Japonica (Japan) are greenhouse evergreens with respectively red or white and pinkish-purple flowers.
For evergreens August or September, and for greenhouse and stove-plants the spring and summer months, are the times most suitable for propagation by cuttings.
