Falling Leaves

Winter Tree (Lake of Zug)

With central European climate, where you have seasons with pretty high temperature differences, ie. up to some 40 or even 50 degrees Celsius (say, -15 to 35) across the year, the trees show a clear pattern: no leaves in winter, growing leaves in spring, mostly green leaves during summer, and then colourful, falling leaves in autumn.

All Seasons Tree (Tamarin)

Here, with temperature differences of only about 15 degrees (say, 18 to 33) over the year, and always well above the freezing point, what is the corresponding pattern?

Some trees just have all the “seasons” going on all the time, with leaves at every stage!
