Those other evergreens

When someone mentions evergreens to me, I usually think of conifer trees. It might be the spire-like subalpine fir I see on the way to Dipper Lake, the bushy lodgepole pine and Douglas fir that carpet much of the park, or even the scattered Ponderosa pine that dot the western side of Sunflower Hill. While evergreen trees are the most obvious examples of plants that keep their leaves throughout the winter, there are actually more kinds of evergreen shrubs and flowers in the park than there are these larger cousins. Buried beneath the snow or peeking up through the crust are a couple of dozen species of plants which, unlike most of their neighbours, hang on to their green leaves throughout
