Semi-deciduous is a botanical term which refers to
plants that lose their foliage. Semi-deciduous plants lose their foliage for a very short period, when old leaves fall off and new foliage growth is starting. This phenomenonoccurs in tropicaland sub-tropical woody species, for example in " Mimosabimucronata". Semi-deciduous may also describe mild-weather trees that lose leaves in a manner similar to deciduoustrees in an especially cold autumn.
