deciduous

Latin verb decido, "fall off"
Trees or shrubs that lose their leaves during the winter.
Deciduous plants, including trees, shrubs and herbaceous perennials, lose all of their leaves every winter. This is called abscission.
The converse of deciduous is evergreen, where green foliage is persistent year round.
