Can evergreens be planted in the fall?
Broad-leaved evergreens should be planted in the spring, not the fall, e.g. hollies (Ilex spp.), southern magnolia (M. grandiflora), andromedas (Pieris spp.), boxwoods (Buxus spp.), rhododendron, including azaleas, cherry laurel (Prunus laurocerasus), mahonia, skimmia etc.
