Nevergreen : noun/adjective : [nev-er-green]

Definition:  A tree or shrubbery that never produces green leaves.

     This one came from a ten-year-old pointing out that the opposite of an evergreen tree must be a nevergreen, or in other words, it must be a tree with non-green leaves.  Like a Japanese red maple tree, like this one here:

     Yup, that's definitely a nevergreen tree.  Though it's not only tree's with leaves of a greenless variety that qualify as nevergreens.  Dead trees do too.  From the mouths of babes people, from the mouths of babes.
